Each shop or restaurant has a page or two devoted to it, itemizing the address, phone number, website, nearest Tube stop, and hours of operation. There's also a brief history of each store as well as the best things to buy there (or order there, in the case of the restaurants and pubs.)
The book ends with a quick roundup of the best street markets in London.
This is a book for the discerning Anglophile. Its small size makes it easy to tuck into your carry-on bag.
The only negative thing about the book is it caused me to spend way too much money and resulted in much heavier baggage for the return trip.
The pages are small, but the book is thick. It is too thick to be able to leave open, even for a moment, so you will need a bookmark handy.
I'm sure some of the information could be found googling, but it would take too long to do the work yourself. The book is efficient.
The photographs are of a good quality. They keep me engaged and give me a sense of many of the businesses. The photographs are better than books of a similar style.
I might not travel to London with the book. I am making my own list from the book of sites to see when I am there, and this is because of the weight.
