Basic review sufficient for a long weekend visit
on 14 March 2012
Although adequate for a weekend visit, I found this book a little disappointing in comparison with other books I have in the same series. The history section seemed a little sparse, and many sections seemed to me to be a bit superficial. Other sections tended to criticise and demean anything that wasn't quite to the writer's taste, rather than just sticking to the facts. Some of the photos don't really do justice to a very picturesque city. It would have been helpful to have a map of the bus routes in addition to the tram routes.
Despite my comments, I found the book invaluable, and up-to-date. It certainly helped me to see the main sites, and make the most of my limited time in the city. In the absence of anything else it certainly does the job, and of course fits in a pocket.
