I was recommended this particular guide book prior to a 7 day visit to New York and was heartily thankful to the recommender. Big cities are always too big to see everything, so a book of lists is perfect. As per the title, this divides things into lists of 10s, but you don't have to use it like that - you can dip in and out at leisure. It has sections for all the NY boroughs, an these are subdivided into things of interest in those boroughs. There are top 10 department stores, top 10 comedy clubs, top 10 churches and temples..... and so on. There are bound to be, of course, things you find on your own that are not in this little book, but that's the fun of exploring, and this will give you a good start. Nice fold out maps of Manhatten and the subway at the back and also a removable one (although this is so small a portable magnifier would be handy). And in 100% colour, too.
Good size (will fit into all handbags except the smallest, or a knapsack pocket, or a windcheater pocket. I would recommend this to anyone taking a New York holiday.

This guide gives detailed information on all aspects of travel. I particularly like the suggested walking tours and maps that are included.

I have a large number of these travel guides. What I like about them is their format - each book gives an overview (rather than lots of detail). It provides a summary of what is on offer. Inside is not just the obvious i.e. the Top 10 sights to see. Also you get things like the Top 10 museums & galleries, Top 10 markets, Top 10 Arts & Crafts, Top 10 events etc. - even the Top 10 things to avoid. That makes them very useful, and a unique approach to travel guides. I use them to decide what to do, and then use another book (or a website) to give me more detail if I need that.

This book covers, for example:
 Empire State Building
 Fifth Avenue
 Rockefeller Centre
 Statue of Liberty
 Ellis Island
 Times Square & Theatre District
 Central Park
 Metropolitan Museum of Art
 Guggenheim Museum
(This is some, not all)

Top 10 topics include:
 Top 10 Museums
 Top 10 Art Galleries
 Top 10 New York Skyscrapers
 Top 10 Historic Buildings
 Top 10 Figures in History
 Top 10 Performing Arts Venues
 Top 10 Cabarets
 Top 10 Romantic Settings
 Top 10 Gay & Lesbian New York
 Top 10 Festivals & Events
 Top 10 New York Stores
 Top 10 Places for Children
 Top 10 Restaurants
(This is some, not all)

The book in its physical format is small - just small enough to fit inside a DL envelope (i.e. the standard white envelope, designed to accept a sheet of A4 paper folded twice). It is actually a few centimetres shorter than a DL envelope. This compact size makes it easy to fit into your pocket.

This book can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'.

I bought this book for my brother so hav no idea what he thought but I always love Top 10 travel books and find them very easy to use as they are not like novels (like some travel guides) but simple & useful. Probably not for you if you like a really in-depth travel book but these guides tend to hold enough info to help you plan your trip.
