I bought this guide after reading some positive reviews on the Wallpaper guide series and being attracted to the slim size and that it was fairly up to date. Although the guide did have some positives (the 24 hours in Havana itinerary was excellent), I found it to be wholly insufficient as a practical travel guide. Suggestions for bars, restaurants, cafe's etc were minimal, with no way of searching by area or location. What few recommendations there were were sometimes not marked on the map, making locating them difficult to say the least. The map section was woefully inadequate, with most streets completely unmarked and no orientation included. On the whole I found it to be almost unusable as a stand alone city guide.
