If you're a visual learner like me, this is a great book to give you an introduction. It has easy to read maps and suggestions for how to spend four days. If you're looking for something with more in-depth explanations, I'd search elsewhere. Or you can do what I did: use this as a starting point and then use Google to learn more.
