Still alphabetical in its approach, there are now many more photos and maps and far less focus on giving history lessons (although it is not an area ignored).
The 3 star rating for towns, cities and places of interest and sights is as before but the maps make them easier to find and the descriptions are lively and interesting.
I have a 2003 copy of this guide which at best is worth 3 stars. This edition I recommend without reservation.
Oh, except it is slightly smaller than previous copies so doesn't line up well on your bookshelf!
For example on page 175,on the area around Briancon,the guide exhorts the reader to 'see above' for information on the town. 'Above' turns out to be 10 pages earlier on page 165. Not easy to follow!
The typical Michelin alphabetical set up is severely compromised by their choice of areas to include under each section. Geographical links are suspect and again the inadequate index let down what could be a great guide to this lovely area of France.
