Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Like being taken around by a savvy local." ?The New York Times

"Little fluff and lots of fun." ?Boston Globe

"Hipper and savvier than other guides." ?Diversion magazine

Are you tired of clich?-ridden guidebooks packed with promotional fluff? Then move over to the IRREVERENT GUIDES?the travel series that no tourist board would dare to recommend.

Look inside for the lowdown on:

  • Great hotels for misbehaving
  • Which big-name restaurants are really worth it
  • Must-sees for first-timers?and hidden gems for those who think they?ve seen it all
  • State-of-the-art shops you won?t find anywhere else
  • Terrific theater far from Times Square?s maddening crowds
  • And much more!

We knew we were doomed with this book when, on the very first day of our trip to Manhattan, we walked into a recommended "authentic NY" pizza joint, took one look around and realized everyone in the place was a tourist. The pizza was gross, overpriced and left us feeling like huge suckers.

This book bills itself as the "insider's" guide to Manhattan, but it consistently let us down with restaurants and attractions. It also didn't give us a great idea which neighborhoods or areas are dangerous, or best avoided at night, etc. The maps are minimal enough to be almost worthless, and we could have used a lot more information on how to use the subway system. This book is definitely not worth the money.
