Combines parts of the Lonely Planet guides for Russia (and I assume China and Mongolia) into a one-source book. Great focus on many different paths for a trans-Russia itinerary. If you are seriously considering making the trip, this is the book to buy!!
A lot of stuff they write about is closed in winter and they just don't provide information at all about winter travel in some places making the guide frustrating sometimes. They also don't always list the names of things in the native language (Russian, Mongolian, Chinese so when you are looking for something on a sign it is impossible to find or figure out. It is nice that it is digital though so I can just have it on my phone and I did find some good restaurants (when open) using the guide just don't use it as your travel bible. I got the trans-Siberian handbook by Bryn Thomas and Anna Kaminski and liked that they include native language names and the time difference from Moscow for every town (very helpful on the train). Although there winter info is a little off also.
Lots of info about routes and prices. Great source of planning material.
