Product Description

Review

When I buy a guidebook, I usually look for the Frommer's $ a Day budget guides Washington D.C. from $80 a Day, Paris from $95 a Day, etc. Why? Well, mostly because I'm a creature of habit. I started buying the Frommer's and Let's Go guides years ago because they focus on budget travel. Let's Go is great for backpackers and those on a really tight budget. Frommer's is a bit more mature but still budget-minded (think hotels rather than hostels), and I like their ''Suggested Itineraries'' section and their maps (Frommer's maps are among the best). But now that there are so many other guidebooks to choose from, I buy Frommer's mostly because I can be in and out of the store in minutes rather than hours and I know I'll come home with a reliable guide. Then, just this past month, everything changed . . . I discovered something new . . . You see, when I went to the bookstore to pick up guidebooks for my upcoming honeymoon, I got an idea . . . Why not, I thought, buy five different guidebooks (from five different publishers) and compare them to find my favorite. So that's what I did. I bought one brand for each stop and then, on my way out, I saw a little Paris guide I'd never seen (or heard of) before. So I picked that up too. (I go to Paris at least once a year so I can never have enough Paris guidebooks.) Here's what I found . . . and it surprised me: My favorite book of all for both pre-trip planning and on-the-ground support is The Little Black Book of Paris. The other guides I bought are all divided into sections this way: Where to Stay, Where to Eat, What to Do. But The Little Black Book of Paris is divided by area. And each area has its own fold-out map (which, to be honest, blows the Frommer's maps out of the water). While the guide doesn't have an entire history or culture section like most of the others do Lonely Planet, TimeOut, Fodor's, etc. it's well written and there's an overview of each area at the beginning of each section. I liked the guide so much I went back to the bookstore to buy more. --Lori Appling --The Travel Writer's Life

Best Travel Series of the Year, 2008 ''We select the Little Black Travel Books as our travel guide series of the year. The main reasons for designating these guides as best of the year are their portability and user friendliness. (The spiral binding allows the reader to keep the book open to a certain page.) Individual volumes are small enough to fit into a pocket, but in terms of helpfulness, they are twice their physical dimensions. The other reason these guides are so worthy of praise is the fact that each volume has a neat, tidy, and nicely detailed foldout map to the particular area under discussion. The chapters in each volume correspond to the geographical areas into which the authors divide the city for the tourist. Each chapter gives basics on places to see, available art, and entertainment venues, places to eat and drink, where to shop, and where to stay. You can study a range of guides before your actual trip, but this is definitely a commendable candidate for carrying with you on site.'' --Booklist - American Library Association --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Just come back from New York and found this book a dream to use. The separate titles with corresponding maps were great to use. We wouldn't have discovered Eileen's Cheesecake Shop without this book

a great buy :) was small enough to carry round in my shoulder bag, and the pull out maps were great as you could just pinpoint certain areas to visit and then you just had to look at a small section of the map rather than opening out a big one. also the subway map at the back was really useful. some great ideas for shops and restaurants which we tried. great as something to help get you around but just has key info about things so if you want to know more you would need to supplement it with another book / internet search.

Well laid out and so easy to read and quickly plan a visit to New York. Good clear maps. Small enough to be taken with you and well made.

I would liken this book to a scaled down version of the DK New York guide.Both are very good and this one gives you everthing you need to know in a more condensed form and lighter more pocket friendly size.
Slightly samaller than a filafax and with a useful elasticated page saver.
The stick on book title can also be removed with ease and leaves no marks.After visiting New York a number of times for holidays I would advise anyone to plan each days itenary ahead so you get the best out of the experience simply because you wont waste time searching for where you want to go.Plan ahead use this book and the DK guide and
you'll get the best value and enjoyment from your holiday.
