    Ordered a copy from amazon for the better half. Hadn't heard of it before and looked interesting on the "you may like".

    Great book. I don't follow his routes slavishly, but rather use it for finding out what may be in the "local" area and sometimes determining which direction to go in tomorrow.

    FWIW, it's the only English language travel book that I've seen for sale in a shop in Andermatt, Switzerland.

    Anyone that has the 4th edition can pass on the purchase of the 5th edition as the Pyrenees and Picos were included in the 4th edition. Same number of pages in both editions.

    He's updated the status of some roads that are no longer open to traffic and other edits.

    But no new material, as you noted.
