    Just wanted to let everyone know about a travel guide book that should be avoided. It titled "Disney World: The 2010 Travel Guide" by Mikayla Brielle.

    I picked it up at Amazon because there were around eight straight 5 Star Reviews. I should have looked more closely. Turns out the reviewers are all connected to the small publisher. They post glowing 5 Star Reviews for each of the publisher's books. And then bump their reviews up to the top.

    Amazon caught on and removed a couple of the reviews, but they've come back and reposted. Very dishonest.

    Anyways, it's a lousy guide book. Don't be deceived by the bogus "reviews" at Amazon. Here's my review:

    I just looked it up on Amazon. It looks like they took down the 5 star reviews. Now there is only yours and one other person who also gave it a one star review. Isn't in amazing the garbage that gets published these days? I'm a librarian and it never ceases to amaze the stuff that gets published including incorrect and poorly written guidebooks. I just checked out Fodors 2010 Disneyland with Kids and I've caught so many mistakes and it's not stuff that just changed either, it's things that have been gone or were changed years ago. Hello?? Do any of these travel book writers ever actually visit the places they're writing about?
