1.0 out of 5 stars very little use, 8 Sep 2010

This review is from: Time Out Paris 18th edition (Paperback)
I bought this book based on the reviews and in the hope that it would be up-to-date as it is re-released every year.

The book is not user friendly at all. The areas are not listed by arrondisement or in any useful order, the maps are at odd points in the book and therefore you cannot flick to them easily, the sections are long winded and inaccurrate. It really is an incredibly frustrating book.

A Sunday Times article about eating in Paris recommended a restaurant the week before I visited Paris (August bank holiday), when I looked it up in the Time Out guide, it was listed as closed in August. Based on the fact that The Times had recommended it so recently we went anyway - it was not closed in August and as far as I know never does close in August. We ditched the book after that in favour of local magazines.

I'm not surprised it was out of date. I met a Time Out guidebook writer the other day who said he only had three weeks to update another city guide in entirety! There's no budget for travel, so writers are not able to eat at all the places they 'recommend'; I am afraid the temptation to make short cuts and download other people's lists must be there.
