The book was useful about customs and lifestyle in Vietnam. However, if you plan to travel there, you will need other travel books as well. This only covers Hanoi and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).
A lot of the bar information in the book is no longer accurate. Things have changed a lot since 1999. Sam Son's is no longer open. And, information about places in Ha Noi is no longer up to date.
I think your best option is to hit the Internet prior to your visit and go to online chat places such as [...] and vietfun.com to meet guys in Vietnam in advance of your visit.
Inevitably, as in all such guidebooks, some of the specifics, such as gay-friendly bars or cafes, are no longer accurate by the time the ink dries. Nevertheless, this has much valuable practical information, and is written from the perspective of a genuine friend of the Vietnamese.
