Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Emerson (The Cheapskate's Guide to Las Vegas, Citadel, 1994) aims at low-budget travelers who don't want to spend more money than necessary. However, frugality is not without its perils. Restaurants and hotels are often cheap for well-deserved reasons. Unappetizing meals and fleabag hotels can leave a wallet full but ruin a trip. Emerson is adept at judging when spending a few dollars more is worthwhile and when it isn't; this is her book's greatest strength. Written in a frank but noncynical manner, this guide is chockablock with information, both basic and esoteric; those venturing abroad for the first time will find it more useful than would more experienced travelers. London is the most popular destination for Americans going to Europe, and many good guidebooks are already available to the city. Nevertheless, this straightforward, thorough volume is a welcome addition. Highly recommended for public libraries. -Mary C. Kalfatovic, Telesec Lib. Svcs., Washington, D.C.
