I posted the wrong link that was Canada].

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...e=UTF8&s=books

It is listed as hardcover, and costs $19.95, so I'm thinking this is not be the soft cover pocket version on sale in Paris.

I prefer this one:
le Petit Parisien
ISBN : 2-7072-0407-2
Nbre de pages : 144 6,50 €

because I can actually 'read' the print.

The one Ron posted has each bus system map (see ratp.fr for each bus line's map) and then the route laid over a street map. My problem is that I can't quite read the small print on the street map.

The one I use has 3 maps per arr.
-street
-metro
-bus
also with the metro line and the bus line laid over the street map.
Has an index and other features.
The book is a bit larger, fits in my daybag but not a pants pocket.

This book is very good because the bus lines are actually shown ON the streets the bus runs on.

You can zoom in on this map to read the fine print (Adobe Reader adobe.com required):

What a fantastic website. I was able to zoom in and crop the map to the section I want and print it, in color, large enough that I can read it without my reading glasses. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
