This is an outstanding guidebook! So much better written than most, and very well researched. I really appreciated the history section, as well as short boxes about interesting aspects of Vietnamese culture. I look forward to reading James Sullivan's book, Over the Moat, about his courtship with his Vietnamese wife. How often do you look for a book written by a guidebook author? I've never done that before!
although I am not actually a fan of anything from this part of the world, this book almost made me want to hop on a plane and go see what all the ruckus is about. Gorgeous pictures help the reader to visualize what some of the attractions look like.
