COULD BE BETTER - NEEDS REVISIONReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 November 2016
We bought this to try and be different from the standard Brierley books which every one uses. I'm far from convinced that it was the correct decision. The good points are that it is inevitably very useful: anyone doing the Camino de Santiago benefits enormously from guidance, advice and directions and it to an extent meets those requirements; crucially, it is well bound and in an excellent robust cover so survived occasionally brutal treatment over a near 900km walk. However, it is frustrating: the formatting is a good idea but complex and, particularly in the case of the directions, the fonts don't work too well; there are no vertical profiles which is surprising given the significance of the c11,000m of climb; and the maps, whilst vital, would greatly benefit from colour printing, although I accept that there is a cost dimension to that. Most importantly, the overall book deteriorates markedly towards the end, with increased errors, reduced information, limited or no directions or advice, missed villages, misplaced notes and editorial errors. It bears the hallmarks of a rushed job to meet a publishing deadline. Finally, the entire book is littered with mis-spellings and minor errors which imply lousy proof-reading. In sum, although we found it essential in the absence of any other, I recommend waiting for a revised and improved edition before using this particular guide.

Live from the Camino!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 August 2015
I just finished the Frances. This book has been a great Camino friend. If you're asking yourself WHY would someone waste space and weight of a walking guide on glossy pages and pretty photos, then you'll really appreciate Mr Kelly's style. Its no-nonsense route description and super helpful albergue comments were priceless. Not to mention the food recommendations. This book has led me to some truly hidden gems. Other pilgrims were taking photos of the pages, it was so much more helpful than other books! (including the hugely overrated Brierley book). Many thanks!

Camino a number one guide very helpful book. The one to takeReviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 May 2018
Excellent guide book updated for 2018. Covers the French route, easy to understand and covers the pilgrim hostels - beds prices and what's included in the way of meals. A brief history of east major town on route. Route maps and advice. The guide weights in at 215 grams so not too heavy. I have used the information to book in my first and second night I could do more as phone numbers are provided.

CaminoReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 May 2019
THis looked like a useful book and contains a lot of useful information, nicely presented. Alas, we have changed our minds and shall be starting in Porto, Portugal
Too much history, too little practical infoReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 April 2016
Okay guide for the historical part of the trip, i.e. knowing the different interesting locations to visit, and for the finding of hostels, of which this offers a multitude of options. Found it a tad lacking on the information on the route itself and how to get around, or more lack the absence of information regarding the route and get around. Essentially you are left on your own in finding your way to the Camino. Not very reader friendly at first, because you need to read through introduction to actually figure out what's going on. Overall okay, and delivery excellent.
