I bought this book when I first moved to England in 2006... and after 4 years here, I still use it regularly. Slim and compact, pop-up pages that are easy to read on bumpy buses and crowded tubes, and an impressive amount of detail as well. Includes a tube map in the back. Friends who arrive with unwieldy folding maps and guide books quickly lose interest in theirs and start looking over my shoulder.
I bought this second copy for my father, who tried valiantly to swipe mine during his summer visit. He's back in the States now, dreaming of his time in London and planning his future visits.
A great gift for travelers and others who like to explore.
