Buy the book for £9.09 and you have yourself a decent guide to Venice. Whether you like or dislike the writing style of the Time Out guides is your choice; all I'm saying is stay away from the £8.09 Kindle edition.
Why? In the "old-fashioned" guide book you get maps that, although visually clumsy, will direct you towards establishments reviewed in the book. This is something that the authors of the Kindle edition didn't think you'd need. Worse still, the maps are not scalable, so unless you have a handy magnifying glass, forget using the Kindle maps at all. OK, the device I use to read my Kindle guide has a map application but do I have to keep switching between "apps", to discover where an establishment is?
To further rub salt into the wound, there are some new tablet savvy, "kids on the block", who are producing reasonable beta-versions of tablet guides. Not only are the maps scalable, but the establishments listed, (paid for inclusions I'm guessing, not impartial), are "click-able". Obviously this is the way to go. However, until the time comes when Time Out takes e-reader guides seriously - steer well clear of this turkey and buy the book.
