A unique look at Buenos Aires through the eyes of it's great writers. I like the street-by-street format. But Jason Wilson needs a good editor. There were many run-on sentences and too many paragraphs that jumped from one topic to another making it necessary to reread sections in order to put the information in logical order. Still, I found the book worthwhile and it added to my knowledge and appreciation of this fascinating city.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is good, but several levels below the 'travelers literary companion' series, which covers cities like Prague, Amsterdam, and Hawaii and countries like Spain and Ireland. Unlike those, this book is written by one author, and we therefore get his voice alone, for better and sometimes worse. The organization purports to be useful -- geographic by BA streets, etc. -- but it's quite confusing in practice (since he puts certain entries in the wrong places). Inexcusably, the book contains really poor photographs of random subjects and a single, limited, barely legible map. This needs serious improvement -- unfortunately, there's no alternative to a book on Buenos Aires.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
