Most Americans, at some point of their lives, will vacation in Hawaii, and every bookstore needs to furnish them with reliable, intelligent, and cost-conscious means of doing so. This 288-page Easy Guide provides suggestions in every price range: from deluxe beach-side resorts to modest but comfortable budget hotels and guesthouses; it also devotes considerable attention to restaurants in every price range, and to the many options for sightseeing and entertainment. Because it does t overwhelm the reader with unnecessary detail and choices, but confines itself to the very best in every category, this lightweight, 288-page book by authors who live in Hawaii, will be carried in the pockets or purse of a great number of visitors.
