Format: Paperback
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:
 Washington DC's Highlights
 U S Capitol
 The White House
 National Air & Space Museum
 National Gallery of Art
 Library of Congress
 Washington National Cathedral
 National Zoological Park
 Arlington National Cemetery
 Mount Vernon
 Top 10 Moments in History
 Top 10 US Presidents
 Top 10 Art Galleries
 Top 10 Museums
 Top 10 Historic Homes & Buildings
 Top 10 Places of African-American History
 Top 10 Memorials & Monuments
 Top 10 Green Spaces
 Top 10 Children's Attractions
 Top 10 Places of Politics & Intrigue
 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'.

Great little book to help plan for a tip and then use while you're there. If you want to travel even lighter, just use the pull out map and mark a few things on. Lots of information packed in to suit all different visitors.
