About the Author 作者简介

Brendan Sainsbury:

Born and raised in the UK in a town that never merits a mention in any guidebook (Andover, Hampshire), Brendan spent the holidays of his youth caravanning in the English Lake District and didn’t leave Blighty until he was nineteen. Making up for lost time, he’s since squeezed 70 countries into a sometimes precarious existence as a writer and professional vagabond. His rocking chair memories will probably include staging a performance of ‘A Comedy of Errors’ at a school in war-torn Angola, running 150 miles across the Sahara Desert in the Marathon des Sables, and hitchhiking from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro with an early, dog-eared copy of LP’s Africa on a Shoestring. In the last eleven years, he has written over 40 books for Lonely Planet from Castro’s Cuba to the canyons of Peru. When not scribbling research notes, Brendan likes partaking in ridiculous ‘endurance’ races, strumming old Clash songs on the guitar, and experiencing the pain and occasional pleasures of following Southampton Football Club.

    The newest edition is 100 pages smaller than the 2008 edition.  The maps have deleted much info, places to stay are extremely limited -they have deleted many choices and there events are listed which haven't been in 5 years.  I was Peace Corps in Jam 2010-2012 and the 2008 edition was our bible for the island.  The new one isn't worth the money-buy the 2008 edition, yes the prices stated are out of date but there is much more info.  I was in country during 2014 LP editor revisit, had contacted LP main office to inform them of new attractions but it was for naught, they never even went there.New is a waste of money, it is a rehash without verification, yes there is some new stuff which is accurate but it is far between.  Purchase Old

    No pictures, extremely basic maps. You would be better off just searching online-this is a waste. It has very basic information while missing on giving more in depth information on certain sites/trip plans. this would be good if you wanted a handful of hotels, restaurants in various areas.

    I bought this book for my 21 year old son to help him prepare for an upcoming trip to Jamaica.  Below are his words describing the book:
    "Jamaica book is very detailed. Got the whole island practically mapped out for the every day tourist."
