This 2012 edition of Lonely Planet Antarctica is a big disappointment after reading the previous (2008) edition. Let me explain why.

There are two sorts of people who would ever buy this book. The first group is people who are actually travelling to the Antarctic; those people have plenty of money and would not care about paying a dollar or two more for a bigger book than this one. The second group are people who are just fascinated with the Antarctic.

The 2008 edition was far more comprehensive and thus, more interesting to the second group and more useful to the first group. When Lonely Planet redid the book for the 2012 edition, unfortunately, they hacked out about 150 pages of interesting and informative material. The worst hacking concerned the so-called Peri-Antarctic Islands, a whole lot of isolated but fascinating places such as Kerguelen Island, which will serve as my one example (I could cite many others). In the 2006 edition, Kerguelen -- a remote French possession second only to the Falklands in land mass -- earned five pages of fascinating text, a full-page map, and a detailed history that was a delight to read. In the 2012 edition, however, Kerguelen was hacked down to one reference in one sentence of text noting that resupply vessels take tourists there.

So, if you want an outdated but comprehensive guide to the islands of the Antarctic region, you will have to buy the 2008 edition! If you want an up-to-date but incomplete version, the disappointing 2012 edition is available. I should add that when Lonely Planet chopped out 150 pages of excellent reading material for the 2012 edition, they actually RAISED the price from $27.99 to $28.99. Now that I've vented, I will return the library copy of the 2006 edition and search Amazon for a used 2008 edition that I can add to my collection (having wasted my money on the 2012 version).
This book provides a very nice introduction to Antarctica (with a wonderful cover photo)! Of importance, the book includes a discussion of Ushuaia Argentina, from which most Antarctic cruises depart, as well as multiple islands that are not part of the Antarctic continent but that one might be likely to visit during a trip to the Antarctic peninsula. The volume is thus more comprehensive than one might expect--and covers important regions likely to be visited by the casual tourist.

The volume provides historical and geographical summaries, a discussion of the animal life, and (to this reader's delight) the odd and interesting story, such as that of the Russian physician who was required to remove his own appendix during an Antarctic winter.

The book does address, at least briefly, some of the conservation issues critical to Antarctica.

This book will likely not appeal to the most adventurous travelers who want to make overland treks via ski and dogsled to the geographical pole--but such individuals are unlikely to be looking for the kind of summary provided by Lonely Planet in any case. I can wholeheartedly recommend this volume, however, to the tourist who wants to make an introductory visit to this most remote continent.
When I went to Antarctica in 2011 I did not have this travel guide with me. I frequently used my roommate's copy and found it very helpful when trying to recollect detailed information about places we had just seen, for my travel journal or to gather info about the next port of call. This updated copy has still more information and is very well organized. I'm very glad to have it as a reference and would recommend it to anybody traveling to Antarctica.
Lonely Planet never fails as my traveling companion on my more adventurous trips, assisting me in meeting people from many cultures and speaking different languages. Lonely Planet covers every facet of tourists travels, including listings for hotels, hostels, restaurants, bars and hot spots and interests. Get the Lonely Planet for it's all-encompassing travel advice and a wealth of knowledge that you will want when visiting some of these places. Next stop for me: Checking off Antarctica from the bucket list in February! (with my Antarctica Lonely Planet by my side.)

Lonely Planet will be so valuable during your visit, you'll want other Lonely Planet guides so you are a bit more prepared on the next visit and it's a great way to converse/meet other travelers... )
No hotels. No restaurants. Interesting. There is more information available from individual travel companies out of South America about how to get to Antarctica on planes - which is not included in this book. Usually enjoy Lonely Planet. Will get more of them in the future.
Excellent guide book for my recent Antartica Cruise. Great maps and tips about the beautiful continent, including great info on the animals.
I want to go! Anybody have an extra ticket to give away?

The next best thing. Also read Kim Stanley Robinson's novel of the same name.
Don't hope it will tell you a lot. 50% is about Ushuaia: I can get me a guide for that, all the rest is made with the stereotype of the organized cruise in mind. If you go by sailboat or so, this isn't your guide.
