5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 16 Sep 2014
By VAPF
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this after cheaping out on the '48 hours in Chicago' book.
That book left me wanting more and didn't cover anything in any great detail.

This book, in contrast, is huge and covers almost anything you could hope find out about Chicago.
I'm still in the process of planning my trip, but this book will definitely be coming with me

3.0 out of 5 stars Not an ideal e-book guide 28 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought as a Kindle download I found it disappointing. I found it difficult to work through and to find particular items of interest. The conversion to e-book here has not worked too well.
