    This is a horrible book.  I have traveled all over the world and generally use Lonely Planet guides, but heard the LP book on Turkey didn't live up to the series usual high standards.  So, when I moved to Turkey for 10 months I decided to go in a different direction.  Huge mistake.  This Insight Guide is not only not helpful, it has an incredible amount of useless information.  It tries to cover the whole country, but through acts of heinous omission and lazy writing, it succeeds nowhere.  I travel a lot inside Turkey and this book has not helped in one city.  The book boasts of 'local writers sharing their love and knowledge of Turkey' and yet the vast majority of their recommendations are way off.  Even some of  the names of major museums and cultural sites are wrong, and I don't just mean in spelling.  I have gotten much better advice and recommendations from hotel front desks, people on the busses and other real locals....and I don't even speak Turkish.  The first part about Turkey's history is an interesting read, but if you plan to use this book for any sort of travel assistance or guide, you will be greatly disappointed.  This is not a plug for the LP book, just a word of warning to the wise about this Insight Guide Turkey book.
