Most travel titles are put together in a few weeks by visiting travel writers. Wizard guidebooks take over a year to compile and the writers are residents who personally and anonymously review every facet of the island. Their maps are the best you'll find. From restaurants to helicopter companies to scuba to beaches to trails. They see it all and show you the best the island has to offer. They also reveal who's the worst and who to stay away from. All told in a frank, humorous way that keeps the reading fun.Doughty, Andrew is the author of 'Ultimate Kauai Guidebook Kauai Revealed', published 2006 under ISBN 9780971727953 and ISBN 0971727953.
