“We’ve made the bold move to change the book into an edition that comes out every two years.”, said Managing Director Steve Dowle, “It allows us to put more time into updating reviews as well as developing the website, and printing the guide in colour is the first step in a lot of new changes for WSG media.”
Chief writer/editor Peter Coombs added “Reaction to the new guide in New Zealand and from our U.S. and U.K. distributors has been great. The print quality is the best ever, with really vibrant and clear images and maps. It was hard work but the end result is well worth it.”
