    Insider as Promoter

    A guide book better serving those who've recently moved to the city, I suppose. Includes only three maps [one is of Western Pennsylvania], and accommodations and restaurants are not marked on the single downtown map. In the chapter on accommodations, locations are indicated only by 'North, South, East, West, and Downtown,' with too little description of the neighborhoods. And there is very little guidance or objectivity towards any aspect of a tourist's possible experience, often reads more like promo material.
