Would prefer more history, but hey, it is a pocket guide, and a lot is packed in here considering how small it is.
The hotel and restaurant parts suffer for lack of depth because, hey, it is a pocket guide.
It's a good beginner/first time visitor's guide. For bargain/budget hunters, for repeat visitors, it's probably not satisfying.
As always, I would have been happiest had it had at least some translations of French place names and common terminology relevant to the traveler, e.g., gite, auberge, and even a very basic pronounciation guide, especially given that Quebecer French is as removed from Parisian French as Texas drawl from the Queen's English. I nonetheless recommend it with enthusiasm.
