    Such a cute book

    Muratyan uses incredible, unique graphics to compare and contrast two of th greatest cities in the world. Using minimal words, he describes to you the similarities and differences between New York City and Paris. It's a great gift for someone who loves both cities (like I do).

    This book was dumb. It was obviously written (and I use that term loosely as it is 99% pictures and 1% writing) from the point-of-view of someone who loves Paris and hates New York. It do not see a point to this book at all, except to talk about how wonderful the author thinks Paris is and how terrible the author thinks New York is.
