Firstly this is by no means a guidebook, if you are looking for a quick travel guide for Seattle, I would recommend DK Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide: Seattle on http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1405360941/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_3 Secondly and more importantly, this is as best you can get to a notebook from the best in the notebook business Moleskine, you will find several useful of maps at the front and in the middle which is great for marking down where you been accompanied by useful contact notes and empty directory pages which you can fill in over time. What I really like are the transparent papers which you can stick over the map, creating your own routes or places of interest on the map which you van mark down on the pen. This is handy for points of interests or for marking down the best way to get somewhere. I wish there were more of these transparent papers for every map. In addition to this, you will get several useful contact numbers for the city including tourist information, and emergency contact numbers, with lots of detachable pieces of paper although you probably wouldn't use these. The stickers however are a useful addition which you can stick to the customised directory pages, on the map or on the detachable slips. The only reason why its a four star rather than a five star is that the maps could of covered more of the lesser known areas of Seattle, and perhaps stickers which could of catered specifically for the maps.
