Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Madison is the capital of Wisconsin, its second-largest city, and the home of the University of Wisconsin. The City of Four Lakes is also a popular tourist destination and annually earns a high niche in "Best Places to Live" and "Best Places for Business" lists. This Insiders' Guide installment displays the city in signature style, pinpointing Madison's best restaurants, hotels, nightspots, cultural attractions, and entertainment events. Well worth the price.
