"In keeping with volumes in the Islands series, 'Bermuda' captures many particulars which are not available in any one previous book. It is for enquiring general readers who want to look behind the scenes of tourist brochures; either for reference and general interest or with a view to making a vacation on the island much more worthwhile. Subjects such as geology, geography, fascinating history, people, customs, government, politics, and economy are dealt with in an objective fashion. Vacation planners find out what they need to know before embarking, how to get there, where to stay on arrival, how to travel around, what to see, what to do, where to shop, and where to go after dark."
