    1. Don't be freaked out about the part where he says you have to strip naked and wash yourself in front of a staff member at the Blue Lagoon before entering the spa - it's not true. You do need to bathe sans swimsuit, but it is in the privacy of an individual stall. Perhaps they've eased up on the rules since publication.

    2. I have to admit I didn't read this cover to cover. It's long, and although it has photos, it's as packed with facts as an Icelandic tour guide. (Believe me I can still quote statistics.)Used this to plan our trip to Iceland. Very comprehensive, with two caveats.

    3. Thorough, informative, and witty, once again the Bradt guide was my trusted companion on an international adventure. Online travel sites have their place, especially for convenience, but nothing beats a well-written guidebook when venturing to points unknown, and I found the Iceland Bradt guide to excel. When my eyes were glazing over at all the 5-star and 1-star reviews for Reykjavík hotels (come on, they can't all be AMAZING! or WORST EVER!), the Bradt guide offered brief, honest appraisals a [...]

    4. I can't remember a time when I read a travel guide with such strong language (e.g. tell me how you feel, really, about Iceland's national liquor Brennivin, p. 109) which was pretty refreshing. Overall it was both informative and amusing.

    5. I discovered the Bradt guides when travelling through South Eastern Europe - they were a lot better than any of the Lonely Planet guides. The Iceland guide is another exemplary Bradt travel guide.
