4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant.
An excellent guide book. The Chinese names were extremely useful specially for taxi drivers (taxis very cheap £1/£2 providing you get an honest driver) though you do need to give them the road junctions not just the street name.
The size is very practical fits easily into your pocket rather than carrying a kindle or ipad about.

The book did have useful information but was a bit dated; many of Shanghai's recent iconic landmarks were not mentioned in the book.

The size is very practical fits easily into your pocket rather than carrying a kindle or ipad about.
Though the book was printed in April 2013 some of the information was out of date - ie the Art Museum which was supposed to be in the People's Park was closed and was moved in January 2013. Dispute this fault I can thoroughly recommend it covers enough information for a tourist visit lasting minimum of 2 weeks

This review is from: Lonely Planet Pocket Shanghai (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
This little Guide was invaluable in a huge City where one can so easily be lost. The map attached is easy to read and we couldn't have managed without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version, 19 May 2013

I am an expat family man in Shanghai. With visiting relatives and so much time on the move this is of the perfect size and simplicity.
Want to recommend a short walk?
Need to explain about a certain landmark and need to refresh your memory?
Every time you get in a vehicle in Shanghai you have 30 mins to brush up on where you're going, or brief your visitors.
Just pull out the Kindle and read or share. Job done
