Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"We’ve all been Axl in the 'Welcome to the Jungle' video, stepping off the bus in our hicky clothes and cowboy boots, staring into shop windows, hustled at from alleys—just ridiculously rudderless and confused. A new city—any city—can be daunting. But [ZGPDX] is conversational, non-exclusive, friendly, and—above all—easy to use. It gets shoulder-deep into history and local lore, reaching into the guts of its subject and pulling out a hot, wriggling, well-rounded argument as to why (fill in the blank) deserves your time."  —Portland Mercury

"Loaded with gems on how to have a cheap and amusing time in the Rose City. After a brief history of the city's founding (it involves two men in canoe), you'll find helpful transportation advice and a breakdown of the city's offerings by location. Its exhaustive listings boast everything from arboretums to sex shops, vegan doughnuts to free museum passes, and dollar Pabst to the Mudeye Puppet Company."  —Utne Reader

"Perfectly positioned to capitalize on Portland's white-hot popularity, while also serving as a valuable educational tool by turning on readers (especially those on shoestring budgets) about city highlights that won't be covered in travel magazines or websites. Plenty of civic pride and boosterism, and even more overlooked hotspots."  —Ink 19

"A hip, cool, Portland version of a Lonely Planet guide."  —Razorcake

"Refreshingly honest. Defined accurately the attitudes, vibes, and social settings of particular neighborhoods, as well as listed a decent assortment of local and inexpensive cafes and restaurants. Definitely worth getting." —ReadJunk

"Almost perfect. Really. As someone who has lived in and around Portland her whole life, I think the creators of this guidebook have got their shit together."—Zine Thug

"Required reading if you’re gonna spend any time at all in Portland, the hippest place on earth." —Michael Dean, Stinkfight

"Cuts through the chaff you're likely to find in other tourist guides and doesn't play anything up, providing a straight-forward, non-glossy account of all that is Portland, what to look out for and, often more importantly, what to avoid wasting your time and hard earned dough on...an invaluable resource."  —Riot 77 Magazine
