A great guide to public transit in California with a great deal of coverage
for Amtrak and local commuter rail as well as connecting bus systems.
This is a very comprehensive reference guide to public transportation in
California. I can't say I have "read" the book as it isn't the type of
book that one reads from cover to cover, but it does contain a wealth of
reference material on how to get around in California by train. It also
gives a lot of information of how to get anywhere once you arrive at your
train station, which is always a concern when traveling by Amtrak.
Here is the information about the book from the back cover:
