Read The Title!
on 26 May 2009
As the book's subtitle states, this is a "handbook to living in the city" so it's essentially a book for London residents.
If you're looking for information on the make-up of each borough, housing stock, schools, crime figures and details of local MPs, together with an extensive listing of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, cinemas and theatres, look no further.
If, on the other hand, you're looking for a guide book for a break in London, you may find one of the multitude of other guides (Lonely Planet, for example) more useful!
Why only four stars? The book seems so have gone for the quantity rather than quality approach, so while there's an overwhelming list of (for example) restaurants, there's little in the way of recommendations and reviews
