Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Krannichs, who already have more than 50 books to their credit, have authored several Impact guides in which they share with the reader their love for traveling and shopping. In this new guide, which is primarily aimed at the wealthy and passionate shopper, they focus on exquisite goods and artifacts of Egypt, as well as the enjoyment of plush hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Although they occasionally mention the ancient history and symbols that draw so many to Egypt, the prolific authors are clearly most interested in exploring the shopping rather than the historical treasures of the country. They even advise the average tourist to look elsewhere for more information on the most popular sites. This advice should be taken seriously, for this well-written guide is of little value to those seeking to sightsee in the most traditional way. It cannot replace the general travel guides to Egypt, such as those from Blue Guides, Cadogan Guides, and Lonely Planet, but it does make a nice companion. [Impact Guides have also launched a travel-shopping web site, www.ishoparoundtheworld.com, in conjunction with the series. Ed.] Edward K. Owusu-Ansah, Murray State Univ.
