I have a large number of these travel guides. What I like about them is their format - each book gives an overview (rather than lots of detail). It provides a summary of what is on offer. Inside is not just the obvious i.e. the Top 10 sights to see. Also you get things like the Top 10 museums & galleries, Top 10 markets, Top 10 Arts & Crafts, Top 10 events etc. - even the Top 10 things to avoid. That makes them very useful, and a unique approach to travel guides. I use them to decide what to do, and then use another book (or a website) to give me more detail if I need that.

This book covers, for example:
 Golden Gate Bridge
 Cable Cars
 Fisherman's Wharf
 Alcatraz
 Chinatown
 Golden Gate Park
 Grace Cathedral
 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
 Mission Dolores
 The Wine Country
 Top 10 Moments in History
 Top 10 Historic Sights
 Top 10 Museums
 Top 10 Art Galleries
 Top 10 Churches
 Top 10 Architectural Highlights
 Top 10 Scenic Drives
 Top 10 Restaurants
 Top 10 Cafes
 Top 10 Bars
 Top 10 Gay & Lesbian Venues
 Top 10 Nightlife
 Top 10 Outdoor Activities
 Top 10 Festivals & Parades
 Top 10 Beaches
 Top 10 Day Trips
(This is some, not all)

The book in its physical format is small - just small enough to fit inside a DL envelope (i.e. the standard white envelope, designed to accept a sheet of A4 paper folded twice). It is actually a few centimetres shorter than a DL envelope. This compact size makes it easy to fit into your pocket.

This book can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'.

SO I have just finished using this book to organise our 2 day trip to San Francisco. It has a lot of useful information in it, but I skimmed over certain items as I did not need to worry about them. I aimed for sights and restaurants. After a thorough read, I was able to find all the information I needed. I used the maps which come with the book, and also used some web browsing and reading reviews online. This book was a great place to start and finish as there are far too many things to do, and too many websites to pick from.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who will be going to San Francisco and need a travel guide to get started.

Well worth the investment. Now we have another DK guide for our collection of places we've been. Nice little collection.

I love everything about this guide - I have more detailed guide books but this is perfect for getting to the heart of what you need to see in San Francisco (or anywhere in fact - all the the top ten guides are great). It's also easy to slip in your pocket when you are out and about. Highly recommended.

This book was very helpful for us during our few days in San Francisco. The map could have been better, however, all hotels provide a comprehensive local street map so this did not matter. I would be careful about the recommended food and drink costing guide. We visited a restaurant stated as a $$ and it was most definitely a $$$$. The food was lovely so we couldn't complain.
For a small city guide it's fine.

I like the DK books and this one does not fail to please. We have relatively short time in SF so want to make best use of it and this guide helps us do that.
