“New York City 2009″ (Fodor’s Travel, 552 pages, $18.95) is the can’t-go-wrong choice for just about any first-timer to the Big Apple. First, it’s beautiful—great layout, nice maps, easy-to-read font on thick paper. And design matters with guidebooks: they have to be legible in low light, on crowded buses and in airports when you’re jetlagged and your contacts are killing you.”
You can read the full review over at the New York Times website.
We have several similar full-color guides out this fall and we’re excited about each one, including Peru, Alaska, and Essential Italy.
