I made a comment that I wouldnt buy a LP book and LP banned me from their site. Unbelievable pissweak people.

No wonder their books have gone downhill recently, they have spineless people working there.

All guide books are crap...most are full or misinformation.
Take this for example:
When I was living in Belfast I came across a bunch of travel books for Australia. First off it said that you HAD TO say "gday" instead of "hello" because us Aussies wouldn't understand you. Secondly it said that the standard dress code for Aussie pubs and clubs are singlets, thongs and board shorts.
Bollocks. You can't even get into a pub or club these days with out being dressed up. Take all infomation containted in guide books very lightly.
The only good thing Lonely Planet did was their phrase books.

::() their maps are bad, hotel recommendations outdated and inaccurate and they have hundreds of restaurant reviews which are usless and all this crap for $40. I dont know why they sell so many books. Dumb backpackers seem to like them.

A good book is Explore Australia. Good Maps, photos, coverage of areas, cities.

We're Aussies anyway, so who needs travel books for Australia?
Just pick a spot, get a map and chat up the locals to get the real info.
