Perfect size to fit in to a jacket pocket or front pocket of a bag. Really useful and great idea with the fold out Map. I bought this as gift for a friend visiting NYC for several month and they the response from them was that this book was really useful for getting their bearings.
This is an excellent guide and exactly like the title suggests. Unlike my other two tourist guides (which I rarely used), it wasn't packed with boring information that you can find on the internet anyway, but was giving real advice by contributors who spend their life and know the city. I have chosen many restaurants using this guide and I was never dissapointed. These are choices by people that have really been in these places and their short comments give you exactly what you need to know. A big 'thank you' for making my stay in NY much more interesting
The print in this book was so small I was unable to read it. I liked the size of the book as it would have been handy for keeping in a pocket when sightseeing, but it was useless for me. Also ordered the Eyewitness guide, which was bigger, heavier, and had readable print.
