The book is cumbersome and heavy which is not good if you want to travel light. It does however, offer great color photos, aerial diagrams of museums with areas of interest identified, a lot of information on "must sees" as well as restaurants, tips etc. I made copies of the information I wanted to take with me and left the book home. Every ounce counts when traveling internationally!

not lonely planet...you can't really take it on your trip and expect to get around on it...it's got some great pictures and detailed floor plans and background on sights...but not a really good guide unless you already know how to get around...
