I really enjoyed this book, it provided exactly what I wanted, a better understanding of history and geography within Israel. Obviously the tourist information is out of date, but I didn't read this book for that. ( )

As with other guides in the Fodor's series, this book provides a good general guide for most people. Inexpensive accommodations and dining are listed, as well as more expensive sites, but this is not a guide for backpackers. Cultural background is provided, and there are many excellent color photos. Practical suggestions abound: the best ways to get around, how to avoid crowded times at the sites, when to eat where.
All the major cities and religious sites of Israel are well-covered, as well as the Golan Heights, Bethlehem and a few other sites in the West Bank, and Petra, Jordan. Since Israel is such a small country, one guide book is able to do a good job on covering the whole nation. The maps are numerous and quite good, from city center street maps to regional road maps. Depending on your interests, you may want to supplement this guide with a more specialized handbook for a particular interest, such as Biblical sites or nature parks, but Fodor’s provides a good overview for almost everyone.
