Get the newly released updated copy! The prices here are way off. Also, I feel like the authors barely got below the surface in presenting Amman. Another complaint, several maps and explanations on how to get places are quite vague (e.g., Iraq al-Amir). Onthe positive side, the introduction is solid and the vocabulary section in the back of the book provides a good starting point for those with little or no arabic language.
This is a good guide book for cheap travel in Jordan. Would like to get a hold of the newer version, but this is good. Also has great maps for a country where maps are virtually unheard-of.
