I really like the way the hike statistics are organized. They are in neat tables. The various trails linking different peaks also have tabular stats. And even better, the various hikes for the geographical regions are rated easy to difficult.
As a hike leader, I think the amount of information and the clean way it is organized will be very helpful in planning the hike as well as communicating the relevant information to prospective attendees.
Props to the editor Steve Smith. Top shelf work. If you're in Lincoln, his shop is the Mountain Wanderer.
The book looked great from the little I used it. Hope this helps!
And while I'm on the subject of maps -- the paper maps that come with the Guide are useless on the trail; the average life expectancy of a paper map in foul weather is about 10 seconds, as I have learned through bitter experience. My advice would be to spend the extra money and get the latest AMC plastic maps (which are ALSO much larger now, compared to the petite yet fully functional AMC plastic maps of yesteryear).
