Tips for the Bible (Travel guide books):

Regardless of which guidebook you will end up choosing, I have found that it is most important to choose a book that is up to date.

Also look at the reviews and read into the book to get a feel for the author.

a british publisher; be aware that currency, language and style will be heavily influenced by Great Britain
similar to LP, Let’s Go and Footprint
I have found them to be very thorough and well researched – good for North & Latin America – still with much limited selection
excellent city guides

CIA Travel Advisory. This provides you with a good feel of where it might not be good to travel to right now. At the same time it includes many destinations where I say common. Countries like Lebanon, Israel and Colombia have been on that list for years, exactly these countries have been some of my best travel experiences.
