Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rough Guides launches its new "Pocket" series with titles for Barcelona, London, New York City, Paris, Prague, and Rome. Guides to Amsterdam, Athens, Lisbon, and Venice publish in April. The books are slim and not as wide as their big brother city guides and do fit comfortably in one's pocket. They are smaller in other ways as well—Paris has fewer than half the pages found in the regular Rough Guide. But brevity can be good; there is an amazing amount of information packed on each page. Rome, for instance, describes up to 14 bars, restaurants, and stores in two pages. The series succeeds as well-organized, compact guidebooks, though the typeface is small and can be difficult to read. The foldout and transit maps are unbeatable for the size—one could plan a trip on a train and hardly look out of place. The books for all three cities cover the best of in restaurants, museums, shopping, nightlife, and more, as well as accommodations, sights, and restaurants by neighborhood.Verdict Bargain travelers may prefer another guide, like Lonely Planet, since hostels are ignored and hotels listed are rarely under 80 Euros a night. However, as one of the least expensive series of guidebooks out there, these may be hard to pass up.—Sara Miller, Atlanta-Fulton P.L. Syst., Roswell, GA
