More About the Author

I'm the author of thiry-five popular travel guides and two novels, The J-Word and The Slave. After more than thirty years as a travel journalist and guidebook writer, I found myself wanting to write about something close to home. That's why both novels are set in Golders Green, the London neighborhood where I live.

The J-Word was published in the UK in 2009 by Snowbooks, and came out in a Kindle edition in 2011. It was very well received in the UK, had excellent reviews in the British press, and was featured at London's Jewish Book Week and the Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival.

The Slave has been published on Kindle in 2013.

To read about my novels and see what reviewers thought of them, see http://www.andrewsanger.com/The-J-Word and http://www.andrewsanger.com/The-Slave.

-------------------

The Slave deals with the issues of sex trafficking, prostitution and the law through the interaction of three people living near one another in Golders Green, London's largest Jewish neighborhood. They are Neil Chapman, a young loner who works as a van driver; Bernard Kassin, a respectable lawyer, practising Jew and pillar of the local community; and Liliana Petreanu, who is being kept captive in a room nearby and forced to work as a prostitute. When Liliana asks Neil to help her escape, it becomes clear that going to the police is not one of his options. Nevertheless, he is willing to do anything at all to free her.

-------------------

The J-Word tells the story of an elderly Jewish man called Jack Silver. Jack is resolutely secular and long ago repudiated everything Jewish. He thinks of himself as English. When Jack is beaten up by an antisemitic gang in a Golders Green alleyway, a more religious Jew comes to his aid and advises him to go to the police. But Jack doesn't do that. Together with his 10-year-old grandson Danny, he sets out to outwit and track down the thugs and bring them to justice in his own way. The hunt takes Jack into memories of his childhood and the two unlikely heroes discover a shared identity spanning generations that eventually draws the whole family together.

If you are planning a trip to Dublin this is a must have book.

On a cold day back here in the USA (or Canada) or elsewhere, have a glass of wine and sit in a nice chair or in the garden on a warm day and read this book.
J. Robinson
This guidebook is great for its pictures and detailed diagrams of major sites, neighborhoods, and buildings.

A very good guide book if you confine your trip to Dublin only. Almost all of the information is also contained in the Ireland guide, so you might want to spend a few more dollars and get the whole country. Lots of pictures with sections on what to do, where to eat and what to see. A map of the city center in the back of the book and each section of Dublin has suggested walking tours and a "must see" listing. A very informative section of practical information towards the end which gives you tips on taking the bus, how to get from the airport into the city, how to change money, etc. All in all, a very good guidebook for the city of Dublin.

I bought this book in order to plan a trip to Ireland. I also purchased Ireland by Eyewitness. My advice, unless you are only going to Dublin, buy the Ireland book instead. The Dublin books contents are reproduced verbatim in the Ireland book, plus you get info on the rest of the country as well. Don't get me wrong--it's a good travel guide, but you get more for your money with the Ireland guide.

Format: Paperback
This guidebook is great for its pictures and detailed diagrams of major sites, neighborhoods, and buildings. The book is absolutely filled with brilliant photos that help visitors (especially first time visitors like myself) what the sites look like. It also has photos of practical things such as roadsigns, the euro currency in all denominations, police cars, telephones, and even food. This might seem silly, but it's very helpful to know how to use their telephones and to learn which coins are which before going over there. It has a limited list of places to stay and doesn't go into detail about how to get to all the sites they cover. This is why I think this shouldn't be the only guide you buy if you're planning a trip to Ireland. It is definately one of the ones to buy, however. Another note: if you're like myself, and plan to travel light to Ireland, keep in mind that this book is rather heavy because of the thick, glossy pages - they're great for the pictures, but they'll weigh down your bag. Hope this helps!

If you are planning a trip to Dublin this is a must have book. It outlines the city and gives excellent recommendations on where to stay and eat. The way the city is divided up in the book is the perfect way to plan your trip and can be divided into really three days. It has some outlying things but if you are going around Ireland I would use the Eyewitness book on Ireland and pass on this one.

I have been a fan of the Eyewitness Travel guides for a number of years; their emphasis on a visual format (especially their cutaway diagrams of selected sights) is extremely useful, while their recommendations of restaurants, pubs, and shops have never steered me wrong. I have found this to be true time and again when I have taken it to Dublin, where the guide really opened up the city for me to explore it.

While it is true that much of the information within this guide is also contained within their larger Ireland (Eyewitness Travel Guides), it should be pointed out that they are NOT the same. While the Ireland guide contains most of the same information, the Dublin guide provides more details and some additional sites that were left out of the larger Ireland version. My advice is to stick with the Ireland guide if you are planning on traveling beyond Dublin to explore the island, but if you are staying around the city and its surrounding environs, this is the guide to buy.

I bought this book based on previous DK purchases I had made and found it to be terribly out of date! This book was bought for my fiancee who was travelling to Ireland from the USA to visit myself and my family. Being Irish and living and working in Dublin I found the most basic information to be incorrect, most notably the currency which has been the Euro for the last 6 years. Other transport information also should be ammended in relation to the new overground rail system, called the Luas, that has vastly improved commuting for one side of Dublin to the other. on the whole this book does manage to portray Dublin as a city with an historic background that has to been seen to be appreciated. Also some of the references to attractions outside Dublin appear to make the rest of Ireland look less modern which gave the impression to me that it is more rural and agricultural than it actually is and may not be the most appealing to visitors! Anyway I hope this review just helps to point out some glaring mistakes that should be fixed. On the whole the quality of this DK book was well above other publications that I have read.

Want a great guide that gives you the information you need to know in a easy to reference way? Want a guide that is also a great souvenir? Go for this one! The main caution is to be sure to get a current edition -- Dublin is a city that is changing fast!
