I couldn't help feeling that Michael Palin, who is quoted on the front, must be a personal friend of the authors or on their payroll. He claims the book "Sets the pace for the rest to follow.", but I can only believe it is in the wrong direction.
As an overall impression I can relay that this book lacks the detail a traveller truly needs to feel confident in a foreign place. Details of modes of transport, how to get to mentioned places, how much to reasonably pay etc., etc. are missing.
A friend and I visited Morocco for a week and planned to stay in Marrakech the first night. Firstly the maps on the Medina area appeared vague, with streets fading out into nothing... But when I learned by cross reference that the place we considered booking was actually positioned in the wrong street on the map, I put the book down; for good. Morocco is not the kind of place where a couple of young women want to be lost and in need of direction to their accommodation.
I would not recommend this book.
