This is a 2017 edition.
Wish sections were better divided and had a regional map up front in each. And a book of this nature REALLY needs an index. They say they left it out to save pages, but somehow felt it was worth it to include 10 pages of generic welcome and publisher info up front instead?
However, as with any guide, your actual experience may vary. We went to Yosemite over July 4th weekend, and since all the popular areas were packed we spent a miserable 7 hours in the car on one day, trying to get to attractions suggested in the book. So we made our own plan and had a really great time at the attractions on the Tioga Pass Road - Tuolumne Meadows in particular for a nice gentle hike. These hikes were mentioned in the book, but not highlighted in the best of the park section. So study this book, but then use your judgement given the weather and crowds.
I'm still giving it 5 stars, as it's the best I've found after studying at least 10-12 different books on National Parks. The reason is it's the most comprehensive coverage you can get in one book.
