Doctor Lew's Book Reviews

Perfect digital companion

By John P. Connelly on February 7, 2015
Perfect digital companion for this cruise. I'm only sorry it's not available in print so that my wife could use it too. I've read the entire book at least once in preparation for our Feb 18 Holland America cruise, and I expect to re-read chapters on a daily basis as we continue. The book includes a digestible amount of historical, geographical background for the countries included, along with details for each port of call. Each chapter includes a selection of pictures for the site under discussion. It does not offer information on where to eat or stay, but does give general advice on what to do at each port.


Ideal Book for those Cruising the Cone of South America

By North Traveler on December 15, 2015
When I was looking for guides for an up coming trip I came across this title. It's perfect, for this is the exact trip I'm taking. This book covers everything in perfect detail for just the places I will be visiting. It also gives plenty of history, geography, and political background on Chile and Argentina. Other general guidebooks cover so much that you only get minor details on the specifics. Check the preview and table of contents, you will be pleased.


Very informative

By Rick on the iisland on February 7, 2015
This book is the most informative book that I have read in reference to cruising from the U.S. east coast to the west coast. Combing geography and history along with tour information was most helpful.
