Not bad, but could be better!

I only read the Saudi Arabia section (the only country included in this book that I plan to visit). Most of the expected information was there, but the presentation could be better...
When planning a self-guided tour, it helps to have an overall map with all the places marked, so you can plot a 'logical' sequence for transport from one place to the next. While an overall map is provided in the book, it does not have a reference grid at the edges with letters and numbers, and most importantly, each of the places described in the text does NOT have a grid reference to find it on the map (assuming it's even marked on the map, which many aren't!).
For every place discussed in the book, if it's important enough to have its own heading, it's important enough to have a dot on the map and a grid-reference in the chapter, so it can be easily located.
