Nice anecdotes but lacks of real information.
Especially the type of info that tourist offices won't give you.
Description talks about photographs. Is that the B&W not extraordinary / not worth mentioning pickies we are talking about?
I suppose this guide is described as good simply because there aren't so many guides about Tenerife. It does not make it any less dispensable.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Do not buy this Kindle-edition 10 novembre 2010

The text is good, but as a guide it is impossible to use. There is no navigating tools, no table of content to click and no index to click. I would not recommend this Kindle-edition to anyone. It is wasted money. There should be a "warning" in the presentation.

UPDATE ONE MONTH LATER: I warned about the Kindle-edition about this book. I bought the paperback-edition to be able to use index and jump back and forth in the book. This paperback-edition was also a great disappointment. The whole book looks like it is type set in the 60s. It is typically a selfpublished book with very bad design. It is, I am sorry to say, pure amateurism. So I have to warn about this edition too. Do not waste your money, the price is way too high, about $15 too much.

It is not only the design of the book that is bad. Although the book si well written, this reader is disturbed by the author's and contributor's descriptions about the natives of Tenerife - I will call it predujice against the gentle natives of Tenerife. One simple example is when they write about driving and drivers. They descibe them as reckless drivers. That is simply not true. The Tenerifeños are probably the most considerate drivers in Europe. It is the Scandinavians, Britons and Germans who are the reckless drivers in Tenerife, not the natives (of course every country has the testosterone filled youths as do Tenerife). I am from Scandinavia and spend three months each year in Tenerife; I speak from experience.

And the authors do not tell you about the real "native" places. For example they do not tell about the best fish restaurants in Tenerife, situated in the south in the small fishing village of San Miguel de Tajao (this IS a fishing village, they have their own fishing boats). You do not get more native in Tenerife then this small village. And they also do not mention restaurants like Casa Tómas, Garrafones and Rodeo (in the north) where the natives meet and eat very good food at reasonable prices - served with the wine from the restaurants's own vineyards. And they do not tell about the excellent winery in the south; Cumbres Abona where you can buy the best wines, especially the one called Flor de Chasna which is excellent with seafood - made at the winery. I suspect the authors have not been so much around Tenerife. They have probably just read other guide books and papers like Teneife News and Island Connecion, with some inspiration from the equaly bad book "More Ketchup than Salsa". That is sad.

Conclusion: Do not buy this book, either in paperback og in kindle. Both are made to make easy money for the authors. I am also an editor of books, and can spot amateurism when I see it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 some good information but poorly organized and difficult to navigate 8 décembre 2009

Going Native had a few decent recommendations, but overall I found it very difficult to find anything in the book. The majority of the content is organized geographically, but there's no index so if i want to look up a particular city i've heard of, i first have to figure out where it is in the book (north, east, south, west ...sometimes a matter of interpretation!) which is frustrating. It seems like the book covers almost every city and town on the island. Seems like a good idea on the surface, but the end result is that most of the towns got only brief paragraph mentions, which meant after a couple of hours in a town you were out of options and had to drive to the next town before the book became helpful again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best to Go Native not naked 10 février 2009
Par Sunslave - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book scores on two important levels as a take-along travel book. First it is short and pithy, so no tedious chapters of endless detail to wade through before you get to the hard stuff. It takes you straight into your surroundings. Second, it is written in a very friendly, conversational style. This makes it very accessible, like having a knowing friend alongside you pointing out the features as you stroll along. You can read this on the plane going over, then refer to the relevant pages when you're 'going native'. It's also an easy read on your tour coach or in the pavement cafe as you sip your cafe con leche. If you can't manage a personal Tour Guide this is a very affordable alternative. The next edition could manage a few more pictures. Why not submit yours. The author might be grateful. And you might become famous.
