I went to Kyrgyzstan in 2007 and was fascinated by the country. On returning in 2011, I thought I should extend my knowledge beforehand and looked for reading matter. This is the best I could find and I found it most useful. I went there on a mountaineering expedition to climb in an area previously unclimbed, so the book had no relevance to that, but it was most helpful with information about culture and history as well as information regarding towns I visited.
This is quite a comprehensive guide to a fascinating country. However, it already needs a new edition, even though it's only from 2008. For example, Cholpon Ata is already much more developed and awash with Kazakh and Russian tourists, and has a whole new cultural theme park beside the lake. The Chinese are pouring money into the roads which makes travel times ( in places) much faster. However, there is a lot of useful info here and it's worth buying. Good on the history and cultural background.
