5.0 out of 5 stars A readable and colourful guide, 25 May 2015
This 288-page book - the February 2015 (4th) print edition - is a colourful and informative guide to the Southern African country of Namibia - for real visitors and armchair travellers alike. It has all the usual features, with excellent maps - and a larger font than the Eyewitness guides (for example). There are excellent colour photos breaking up the text columns, and informative and easy to read articles and listings. It is a handy up-to-date guidebook, with its trademark ‘Insight’ articles and features on local history, culture and touristy stuff.

The Contents are -
P003: Introduction
P025-242: History, Features, Insights (Mini Features), Photo Features and Places
(The articles and features are all intermixed with the “Places”, to roughly match the locations.)
P243: Travel Tips
P244: Transport
P246: Accommodation
P258: Eating Out
P263: Activities
P269: A-Z
P274: Further Reading

5.0 out of 5 stars A readable and interesting guide, 25 May 2015
This 208-page book - the February 2015 print edition - is an interesting and readable guide to London, capital city of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. Being a pocket guide - approximately 7½” by 4” - it has a much more concentrated layout than the full-size Rough Guides, and is closer to a standard guide in layout, though still manages to keep much of its character.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction
P012: Best of London (things to see, places to shop, eat and drink
P034: Places (16 sections - each with a thorough description, and its own accompanying mini-guide on coloured paper to make it easier to find)
P172: Accommodation
P182: Essentials (getting there, getting around, Directory, events, phrase book, etc.)
P200: Index

5.0 out of 5 stars A readable and interesting guide, 25 May 2015
This 160-page book - the 3rd edition of April 2015 - is an interesting and readable guide to the capital of Denmark. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. It is a pocket-sized guide, being approximately 6” by 4 ¼”, with a fold-out map inside the back cover. It has a much more concentrated layout than the full-size Lonely Planet volumes, and concentrates on the city itself. This is not a glossy guide with lots of colour pictures, but it is well-designed and laid out, with colour illustrations used as part of the design, not to fill up gaps or break up blocks of small-print.

The Contents are
P007: Quick Start Guide (introduction to the city)
P021: Explore Copenhagen (sections on 8 districts each with a thorough description and mini-guide, plus 3 other locations highlighted as being “worth a trip”)
P123: Best of Copenhagen (things to see, places to shop, eat and drink, etc.)
P145: Survival Guide (getting there, getting around, “Essential Information”, etc.)
P155: Index
