I purchased this book as it was the most recently published, but was very disappointed with some of the recommendations already closed (Mama Tilee) so by day 2 of a great weekend in Marrakesh the book was left in our Riad. This book provided no insights, it feels like the authors were going through the motions with continuous statements of the blindingly obvious: Tips for Riad bargains - Avoid major european holidays - do they really have to tell anyone that. There is a constant patronizing environmental tone and again more statements of the obvious - On Trekking "When there is a toilet it is a good idea to use it" The final annoyance is what is missing, the locals describe football as the second religion with people coming to Casablanca to sleep in the streets of Marrakesh to get a ticket to an international game with all weekend celebration - not a word however in the guide. There is a lot better out there guide wise, a recent Brandt to Bosnia we used was excellent, this however is a waste of money and space in your bag
