The book itself is a dog's dinner. The print is mostly too tiny for comfortable reading; that makes the 'Tour Of Bath' section, a very important section, a lot worse than it might have been if a larger font had been used. If one is not interested in drinking alcoholic beverages a lot of the book may be skipped. It is sometimes vulgar and is without form, and void of planned presentation of information. On the positive side, the author is to be congratulated for writing a guide book about Bath that is not centuries out of date as there are so few authors who have done so.
It saw me through some good times (amazing sweet potato sandwiches at 'Cafe Shoon'), some tough times (getting a little lost), and some unforgettable times (fish finger sandwiches and chocolate fondue at 'The Cocoa House'? "Genius!")
Every spare minute was spent leafing through 'The Book', and I felt as if I knew Mr. Kibblewhite personally.The clear layout and 3D maps meant that I was able to spurt off facts regarding just about anything to do with Bath, from hot springs to Bath chaps, while walking just about anywhere that my heart (and book) took me.
This guide tells it like it is, from where to get some hearty grub, to a cheap pint, to Austen's residences, to finding sheep 10 minutes from the city centre. What this guide doesn't tell you clearly isn't worth knowing.
