If you are planning a trip to Maui, then you need a copy of Maui Revealed: The Ultimate Guidebook As one reviewer wrote, "Maui Revealed is blisteringly candid, refreshingly honest, funny, interesting, and educational." You'll miss a lot without this book. And there will be a lot you wished you missed. This book is as much about avoiding tourist dreck as it is about finding hidden gems.
