Absolutely perfect for the purpose, small enough to fit into even the young man's pocket, compact and full of detailed information. I bought this for my son who was spending three days in Rome and was delighted with it........so was he!
This 4 books in 1 collection is absolutely brilliant. My son has been using it since he was 9yrs old and three years on is still using it, independently now. The recipes are well laid out, beautifully illustrated and clear and easy to follow. The results are delicious too !!!
