Format: Paperback
This is the first travel book I have ever sat down and read cover to cover for my own enjoyment. Broke-ass Stuart is not a travel guide, it is a voice. Don't get me wrong, the book is informative; however, what sets it apart is Stuart himself, a street-wise hipster who perfectly balances going with the flow and traditional San Francisco irreverence. Finally, Stuart gives it to you straight. If a place is cheap and bad he'll say it. If a place is expensive, he'll tell you to bring a friend and split it. Stuart represents a growing population who just wants to go out, have a great time and pay rent at the end of the month.

Ever found yourself stranded, starving, and without a clue as to where you can take your $10? Be thankful you've got this book with you. I personally wouldn't have an idea what to do if I were stuck in the Richmond, or, God-forbid, the Marina, but if lightning were to strike and I ended up there, this book would be my savior... great maps, inside tips, deals galore, and it's very, very cleverly written to boot... not just for tourists and douchebags, locals will love it as well. Do yourself a favor!

I very recently purchased this book because I am a broke student with a graduate degree and a not so great paying job. Once I started reading this book, I noticed some of my usual favorite places to chow down in San Francisco, but there was even more places I never tried and I even passed by without noticing.

This is the perfect companion book not just for local residents, but for tourists on a budget, especially when visiting a major city can cost a lot of money a day.

Format: Paperback
I've lived in the city now for about 5 years. I've come to know my familiar neighborhoods, establishments and events. Maybe too well. This book is pretty good because not only does it give you a reason to venture from out your old stomping grounds, it also gives you some pretty strange facts. (i.e. Where is the best 7-11 in the city? Where can you get all-you-can-eat filet mignon steak sandwiches for 7 bucks? What is a "Bear Bar"?) I like this guide pretty good. It's got maps, the entries can get pretty hilarious, and the tips are way more eclectic than any Frommer's Guide I have perused.

As a proud San Franciscan I can admit this guide gives me more reason to explore my city.

Format: Paperback
My wife and I first picked up a copy of one of Stuart's zines the second time we came to San Francisco a few years ago. Instead of being stuck in the tourist traps like the first time we visited, we were able to experience San Francisco like a local with a budget equivalent to ours.

We've been back several times and have since bought this book which is every bit as good as the zines were but with 10 times the great tips. Stuart's voice is so original, you won't even need a novel to keep you entertained while you're in San Francisco.

Can't afford a package deal or tired of following the well trodden trail of the major guidebooks? Pick up a copy of Broke-Ass Stuart's Guide to Living Cheaply in San Francisco. You won't regret it!

I bought this book while waiting in line at the SFSU campus bookstore. It had tons and tons of great places to eat, drink, and adventure to in all districts of the City. And, as a bonus it is very well written, and quite funny. If you are a college student, recent San Francisco resident, or just in love with the City, you should get this book. Its a deal at $13. But, please don't buy it from amazon, go over to your local independent bookstore and buy it, even if its a little out of the way. I only use amazon to get the word out, but if you dont support local stores, books like this wouldn't exist.
