   NO MAPS! in a book about driving routes!!!
The book would be 100 times better if it had just had the simplest map showing the route. There is no such book as The Road Warrior. Yes, I am sending it back. The books just make for a lot of work, Simon says.
   Wish they included maps of the routes
But it would really benefit if we had maps included. Even if I had to pay extra, I'd still have access to the exact website they've mapped it out for me.
   Not completely accurate
We found so many errors just paging through it, we couldn't put it down. The problem is especially prevalent on the labels of cell phones. There is also very little detail about the drives, so if you don't use it as a travel guide, it's probably okay.
   No maps in a Book About Drives
It's the first time I've disappointed somebody. There is no map in the book, so the writer must have missed something. One would expect that a book about 100 drives would contain maps of those drives, but there is no such book.
   Great guide, beautiful pics
Bought it as a present for a friend who bought an RV. It was a blast, said Blair. We're still working on the second book, and possibly the third.
   No maps, no real hidden gems
Before you embark on a road trip, you should have maps and some research. I was hoping to get some inspiration, but it didn't pan out that way.
   Not happy
I read that people didn't like the fact that there were no maps in this book, but I bought it anyway. Yes, I now agree with them. It needs maps and it's a bit boring with only about 1-2 pictures per drive.
   A National Geographic Travel Book with No Maps
Some very good ideas to group travel destinations by general area, subject to such things as caves or UFOs, but this book has no maps! Because it's so flexible, you can basically plan your trip around that. The guy is from San Diego, Calif., so must have good taste, Ms. Rule told the judge. If you are willing to spend the money to get the ideas for the trip you are fine with the purchase of this book. And I am okay spending the money for these few ideas, but I do not think this is a good investment as a travel book. On the other hand, most of the 25 or so Nat Geo books I have are great and have maps. Note the subheading of this terrible parable in the "Persuasion" series, "No maps." The Vatican had no comment on the travel book.
   Pointless, just skip this book. No maps
I now own four books in the series, all by Lee Child. This book is useless, its all about drives, but doesn't include a single map. For instance, the Green and White Delight trip in Vermont and New Hampshire just says 425 round-trip from Boston. It's just that we don't have a map showing the exact route. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
