    Excellent View of South Beach

    On my recent trip to South Beach, I was stumped on what to bring friends. 'South Beach Deco, Step by Step' filled the bill. I got one for myself too, so I didn't have to take a lot of (usually disappointing) pictures. It captures the Hotels and the Art Deco scene perfectly. The writing is lively and the visuals great. It was like having a friend to cue me into the key things to know. Where to eat, where to hang out, what to see. With the maps I found every jewel in the book and then some. I flip through it with friends to show them what a great time I had. It is an A+ book, fun and useful.

    A Must-Buy for Anyone Into South Beach Deco

    I am a world-wide traveler and have a large collection of guidebooks that I usually purchase prior to taking trips. I purchased 'South Beach Deco,Step By Step' after I visited Miami Beach because it made me feel good about the times I had there and supplied information that I will use on future trips to South Beach. Ordinarily I skim a book until I find a particular area of interest, but I found myself reading this book straight through. It is fun to read and so informative at the same time. I loved the explanations of what tropical deco is, and I enjoyed gazing at the photos that are quite plentiful and vibrant. There is nothing boring about this book and it just makes me want to return to that part of the world as soon as possible. 'South Beach Deco, Step By Step' leaves the other books I have read on this area in the dust (or perhaps I should say sand). The reason being is that it has an excellent balance of information-- just enough history so that it never becomes boring, a sufficient but not overwhelming amount of recommendations so that it is not confusing, easy to understand definitions,and a smattering of humor which makes one smile. I will take it with me on my next visit.
