Hawaii - Legislation being sought holding guide book writers accountable

Jump to last reply

Interesting article in today's Wall Street Journal, regarding tourists getting injured while visiting "risky" spots that they learned of through guide books. This has been a hot topic, in the past, and is still heating up! Its a short read, that I found interesting.
To me, it seems that people must always be responsible for their own actions, and its a bit of a stretch to blame the guide book writers for people's carelessness. As long as the writers point out the dangers, they shouldn't be held "responsible", I think.
