To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
bought this as my friend had already bought the lonely planet guide and all other guides appeared to be outdated. Unfortunately upon comparison between the two this guide lacks quite a lot of information that I would consider to be quite useful.
I have lots of DK travel books and love them. However, this book on Alaska is dull and not very informative. I live in Alaska and thought it would be handy. Seems as though it was written by someone who doesn't care about Alaska or appreciate its beauty and diversity. TripAdvisor.com is a better place to check things out.
