Guide Books..What do you expect from them ?

Jump to last reply

Recent questions about guide books on a number of forums prompts me to ask..

What exactly do the readers of guide books expect them to contain? or what would be, or is gained from their use?

I am of the pick them up look at the pictures and put them down unread brigade. Others have shelves full of them and believe every word contained in them even when they contradict each other?
