A good guidebook should give you more than just star ratings on hotels and restaurants - it should help the savvy and curious traveler learn about the culture, politics, and people as well as tell you where to find the best beaches and hottest night clubs.
"Jamaica: The Rough Guide" is a good source for travel in Jamaica, although some content is lacking.
The authors have adequately covered all the basic information for visiting Jamaica. The accommodation and restaurant sections are ample enough to help the reader make a decision, but I found the ratings systems in guides such as Fielding to be easier to comprehend and use. A significant shortcoming is the lack of web sites or e-mail address...today, most hotels have e-mail and web sites that make booking a reservation easy and cheap. Since the guide is a 1999 reprint, this information should be included.
There are some very interesting and occasionally fascinating tidbits of information found in sidebars on the pages of this guidebook. For example, "Sexual Stamina Potions ensure a sexual libido in Jamaican men" and "Ackee: the national dish kills up to 10 people a year."
Overall, "Jamaica: The Rough Guide" is a valuable guide and will help you understand this wonderful country. It is an adequate guidebook as it pertains to recommending hotels and restaurants. Recommended >

I enjoy Roy's books, but there is a quality missing from them all: he refuses to place men and women on the same level. According to him, women should be subservient to a man who has a "right" relationship with God. I don't buy it anymore. Sorry Roy. God created us equal, male and female created He them. To God, we are equal. To Roy we are not. That's wrong thinking.
If you're looking for an author who exhibits great, in-depth spirituality, I would recommend anything by Leo Tolstoy, but in particular, "The Kingdom of God is Within," to begin your reading.
by Roy Masters.This book unlocks the secret truths about
male/female relationships that have been lost for many,many
many generations.This is not a book for the casual reader.
This book goes to a depth that NOTHING else in this shallow
society could even attempt.If you want the usual men & women
are equal pablum that is spewed forth in our society constantly,
this book is not for you.It isn't politically correct at all.
This book points out the futility of the way we are conditioned
to practice that type of "love".But if you are a truth seeking
individual,male or female;you will find this book as a welcome
breath of fresh air that you may have searched for all your life.
Roy Masters cracks the greatest mystery of all time and blows the lid off of all of our illusions on relationships.
If you want to know the truth about relationships/sex/marriage,
get this book:NOW!

This is the story of the emergence of competing political parties, Federalists and Republicans, with competing ideas about how to interpret the Constitution and how to govern the young nation. Essentially, Federalists like Hamilton and Washington believed in a strong central government, possibly with a standing army and navy, a central bank, national debt to obtain a class of creditors interested in the well being of the US government, etc... Republicans, like Jefferson and Madision, believed in a weaker central government. Jefferson said it best in his March 4, 1801 inaugural address, "... a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits.... and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government" (pg 283). So, when elected, Jefferson slashed the army and navy, cut back on embassies in less significant countries and tried to pay down the national debt (pgs 287-88). The election of Jefferson in 1800 marked a turning point, a transition of power from Federalists to Republicans. Jefferson was then re-elected, followed by two terms for fellow Republican Madison and two for fellow republican James Monroe after that: "Among them, Jefferson and his two chief Virginia lieutenants (Madison and Monroe) held the presidency for almost the whole first quarter of the nineteenth century" (pg 308). To me, this was the GOLDEN AGE OF AMERICA.
This book has great coverage: the debates of the Constitutional Convention, the war between Britain and France that America was inevitably drawn into through it's trade with the two countries, Citizen Genet, the Jay Treaty with Britain, the Alien and Sedition Acts, etc... I found this book very worthwhile, informative, and easy reading...
