i bought a guide book for Greece. Now the country has burnt down.
Will lonely planet give me a refund?
Will i get money back from the Arsonists?
I want to sue because I am fed up.. it is a new book.
A similar situation occurred when i bought a guide book for pakistan... they had an earthquake.
even more inconsiderate is my middle east book. i am sure the maps for lebanon are not so accurate any more.
These events render my book useless and it isn't my fault.
luckily i wasnt affected by the tsunami a couple of years ago and it didn't impinge on any of my purchases.
on a good note an old map i had for Goma in Congo from a 20 year old guide book was surpisingly accurate despite volcano and a lot of tooing and froing with Hutu/Tusi refugees.
but there was bugger all to begin with anyway.
