Overall, you would be better off not buying this kind of guide, doing some research online in forums etc and acquiring a map once in Lisbon. Frommer's guide was similar, although their maps are always better than LP's.
We took this to Lisbon along with my 2007 "Time Out" which I bought on ebay for pennies, and the Time Out proved far superior, although some restaurants in tehre appeared to have closed.
The Encounter has no accommodation in it, relying on you to book one online before you arrive. The Arrival Information is totally wrong. It appears that the Airport Bus ticket at 3.90 EURO is the best option on Public Transport, allowing you unlimited free trips for 24 hours. Likewise, the Prepaid Cards don;t get accepted on the Airport Bus, so if your trip is a short one, just buy subsequent airport bus tickets (provided you don't use the Metro). A local at the bus stop told us this - no word int eh guide. This is the kind of thing I used to buy Lonely Planet Guides for, but this one is poor on everyhting - barely two lines for the city's biggest sights, outdated information, lots of trendy talk.
Perfectly useless and insubstantial. I would not waste my money on this.
The map is not good. It comes in good size but it doesn't cover as big as many parts. I would never associate this with a proper lonely planet book.
