Nicely done
Although this book is short it contains very good descriptions of the day hikes located in the Grand Canyon. The large amount of information they list in such a small section is pretty nice. I recommend this book if you are just looking for some easy day hikes to do in the Grand Canyon.

The beauty of these particular series of books is that they are extremely compact so you can easily slip them in your back pocket or backpack while doing the hikes listed in them.

Not bad...
...for what it is written for: Quick reference to easy day hikes. Don't get this if looking for something more comprehensive.
