5.0 out of 5 stars See San Francisco based on your Mood. Brillant! 30 April 2011
I don't normally use guides as I prefer researching tours and itineraries suggested in blogs. After a couple of days research my San Francisco folder was immense and planning day to day was near impossible because the weather in SF is so unpredictable. Then I found this book, which suggests mini itineraries based on your mood...

Physically it is pocketable, light, attached with a nylon bookmark, and the cover is made of cloth giving a nice feel and grip.
The San Francisco guide divides each area of the city outlined with highlights like any other guide. But they also categorise and link each area based on your mood and location. In the mood for...Romance, Fine dining, escaping crowds, pampering, shopping, quintessential experience, night life etc Since my mood changes throughout the day, it guided us through multiple areas without getting lost. SF streets are laid out like a grid, a compass will help. Transportation is cheap 7 day pass is ~$29 for unlimited rides and easy. Recommendations accommodates both ends of the budget. How much you want to spend, of course, depends on your mood.

It also include recommendations for areas outside the city.
Maps of each area include locations of it's recommendations.
You'll need a bus map though which is very easy to get.

San Francisco is a Fantabulous city. With MANY options to choose from overall this guide saved us a lot time for indecisive people like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a MUST for anyone in SF, not just tourists! 8 Sep 2012
By Jules S - Published on
With a plethora of information, from best times to visit, historical and cultural tidbits, and what else might be of interest nearby, this book told me so much about a city I've actually lived in for 20 years! It reminded me of places and stories I had heard but forgotten and piqued my interest on nearly every page about attractions I hadn't visited. The writer did an amazing job of compiling places for eating, shopping, entertaining, and exploring this great city by its diverse neighborhoods.

Newbies, frequent visitors and residents will all find themselves thankful that they picked up this guidebook. You'll find new ways to enjoy even the well-known tourist attractions (and impress your companions with sordid stories of the past)and plenty of hip places to enjoy SF's ever-continuing metamorphosis. Even better, it's small enough to stash in your pocket or bag without regretting it's weight later in the day. If you love SF - or plan to leave your heart here once you've visited - make sure you check out this guidebook!
4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket-sized Treasure 5 Mar 2014
By Village Green - Published on
Lovely linen-like cover over this handy paperback with lavendar-ribbon bookmark. Color photographs on nearly every page that depict the highlights of the major San Francisco neighborhoods with basic maps. Small enough that you won't mind carrying in your bag for last minute tips on where to stop.
3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult on a Kindle 29 Aug 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A bit disappointing. The maps were almost unreadable on my Kindle Keyboard. But the recommendations were nice anyway. Perhaps another version of Kindle would have shown the maps better.
