    Of very limited use - not your typical LP guide!

    Surprisingly superficial guidebook from a publisher that usually sets the standard. The book might be useful for those who have never visited Paris and don't intend to spend more than a couple of days. For most visitors, simple web searches will result in more substantive information. I was really disappointed by page after page of cliches. Weight is a consideration when choosing a guidebook, and we could easily have been spared introductory chapters - why lug around pages of simplistic analysis of the French? This updated edition has all the faddish content of a Travel channel guide (page 274's 'Queer Eye for the Metrosexual' section is a typical example). Nothing seems improved over previous editions, and some content is quite baffling: why not just save paper and overall weight, rather than including a 'Thanks' section (p.361) that concludes, 'As always, I'd like to dedicate my efforts to my partner, Michael Rothschild, whose knowledge of menu French grows in proportion to...well, never mind.'?
