Check out Appalachian Pages (http://www.appalachianpages.com).

I used the ALDHA companion and the thru hiker handbook. Preferred the companion for last year but the Appalachian Pages look good.

I agree with Blissful, although this has been discussed to death in several forums. I just got 6 copies of the southbound edition of Appalachian Pages (one for each of my three kids, one for my parents, one for my husband, and one for me) Folks can follow me using the book and my journals on Trailjournals.

I just ordered 'Appalachian Pages' about a week ago. Although, there are no maps, its about as in depth as you can get. I havent looked at any other guide books, but I'd find it hard to believe that there is anything better then this book.
