However, it has not to date been viable to publish a new printed edition, sales of which have of course been eroded by the proliferation of tablet and smart phone devices. The publication of this Kindle version goes a long way towards filling in the gap. Although this is not a new edition so text amendments are minimal, the original text has been enhanced by the addition of some new colour photographs. In addition, all the large-scale walking maps have been specially reformatted for the limited page areas found on most tablet devices.With the passage of time there will be some changes on the island. Roads which were described in the text as of poor surface may well now be properly tarmac surfaced ( often financed by EU money). Generally, walking paths and tracks are reasonably well maintained on the island, but might in a few instances have become difficult to negotiate because of overgrown paths. Nevertheless, we believe Landscapes of Samos to be the only guidebook to the island that features car tours and both long and short walks suitable for all ages and abilities, together with recommended picnic spots in beautiful locations. Its a guidebook for those who want to do more than just laze around by a hotel pool and want to explore some of the surrounding countryside. All this in one convenient package for use on the Kindle and any tablet device capable of using the .mobi format. (The 50 colour photographs alone provide a delightful foretaste of Samos for anyone contemplating a vacation there, especially if it is ones first visit!)In recognition of the lack of a complete revision, the Kindle edition is being offered at a far lower price than current paperback editions of another titles in Sunflowers list. This Kindle version can be used on Kindles, iPads, smart phones and most tablet devices or even on any desktop or laptop computer by using the free Kindle app obtainable from Amazon. At its very low price, the book is a superb bargain.
