Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful for my trip bought this in 2008 and used for my trip to Indonesia. It breaks the book down into a bit of history, people and cultural stuff. it also highlights places to visit, things to avoid when meeting locals etc. I really found it helpful...Small enough to carry around, read on the plane, or keep in your purse/bag.
