This little book contains just enough information about Charleston to whet your appetite without being overpowerng. It gives a little bit of information about several different aspects of Charleston and has me excited about my upcoming trip. It is small enough that it can be carried around whilst out there, something which is important when considering what sites to visit, or at which restaurant to eat. The reason I have given it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I feel that it is written for a predominantly American Market. This is not a bad thing, but as I am from the UK, it did make a little bit of a difference to me. Saying that I would still highly recommend this informative little book.
