This does what it says on the tin: gives you a civilized guide to shopping. I've only used it for shopping in Edinburgh, but I'm looking foreward to using it in Glasgow too. It does not contain any maps, which might have been nice, but that is the only thing it lacks. The shops are arranged in order, so you start at the beginning of the chapter, arranged in areas, and use the book as a guide as you walk from one shop to the next without any backtracking. The cafes/restaurants are at the back of each chapter. The shops are spesial, and not all of them would be to everyones interest, but the descriptions are to the point, at least the ones I visited. It's portable and handy, if a little heavy to carry around. The best is that the author has managed to limit herself in her selections of shops.

Format: Paperback
Not exactly a bad book, but probably most useful for visitors from America. To be fair, I think this is its intended audience anyway. There is a strong emphasis on Edinburgh and not much information for Glasgow. Although I don't know Glasgow shops all that well, I do know several very interesting and very useful independent shops in Glasgow, none of which get a mention in this book. Boutique-y shops and eateries predominate, and that's fine for browsing tourists, but if you have a specific purchase in mind then this book may not be for you.

Disappointing 16 Nov. 2009
By Mary C. Philp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm planning a trip to Scotland in the upcomming year and thought this book would give me a heads up about shopping in Glasgow and Edinburgh. While beautifully photographed, the book only deals with high end shopping and expensive specialty shops.I would have appreciated more information that would appeal to broad range of customer, from high end to low.I found the book disappointing.
