Her travel stories regularly appear in the travel sections of various newspapers and glossy travel magazines in both Australia and internationally. She is the author of eight travel books, including Frommer’s Sydney Day by Day, Frommer’s Sydney Free & Dirt Cheap, Frommer’s Tasmania Day by Day, and Frommer’s Bali Day by Day.
Ron Crittall (chapters 1, 3, and 12) was on a long slow loop around the world when he arrived in Perth for a possible 2-year stay. Forty years on, he knows there’s no place better to live. A travel writer for 20 years, he loves traveling round, and writing about, the vast expanse of Western Australia. He is the author of Walking Perth.
Sydney resident Marc Llewellyn (chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) is one of Australia’s premier travel writers and the winner of several writing awards. He is a past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers. He’s written two travelogues, Riders to the Midnight Sun, which tells of his journey from the Ukrainian Black Sea to the Russian Arctic on a cheap bicycle, and Finding Nino, which recounts his year working as a peasant farmer and shrimp fisherman on an island off Sicily. He is also the coauthor of Australia For Dummies.

On the iPad, there IS a TOC on the 3rd page, after the cover but if you are in the middle of the guide, there is no way to access the TOC other than go to the front of the book and then move forward a couple of pages.
My workaround for this issue is to go to the start of the book, move forward a couple of pages to get to the "ToC and then bookmark this page. Then click on Chapter 1 to get there and then bookmark it. Hit the back button to get back to the "ToC" and then hit Chapter 2 to get to chapter 2 and then bookmark it. Repeat this 15 more times to bookmark all 17 chapters. Once this is done your custom bookmarks can then act as rough ToC. I still prefer the e-book instead of carrying the 700+ page tome in my luggage.
One drawback is that I can't seem to sync these bookmarks with the PC/Mac kindle apps.
Also the maps are impossible to read, go to [...] to download a pdf version of the maps. The drawback is that these maps are VERY poorly named.
This is an individualistic decision! The best thing to do is look at several and see which guide feels best to you.
