This guide is awesome - I wanted something that would give me relevant suggestions on what to REALLY do in Paris - not just the touristy stuff. Paris Day by Day includes the author's own suggestions on places to eat (some are out-of-the-way and non-touristy) and the best times of day to be at certain places depending on the atmosphere. Other benefits of this guide:

-up-to-date admission fees and operating hours of attractions

-restaurant descriptions and average meal prices (in actual numbers, not just $$-$$$)

-walking directions from place to place on each tour

-a fold-out map of the city (in its own pocket - it can be separated from the book), and a map of the Metro system.

There's a tour for everyone in this guide, from the monument afficianado, to the gourmand, to the shopper, to the outdoorsy-person, to the nightlife-lover.

I bought the book thinking it would help me make the most of 3 days in Paris. On net, I would say it added very little. The section on Monmartre was useful -- most of the rest not very. As much as I hate to say it, Rick Steves does a much better job in helping one make the most of their time in Paris. In addition, some of Christi's picks were just bizarre. For example, if you had two days in Paris, the gastronomic capital of the world, why would you make one of your meals a falafel sandwich, no matter how good it was.

I zone out when I read dozens of restaurant and hotel descriptions in other guides, so I found this book to be really refreshing. Is it comprehensive? No. Which is just as well, since Paris is constantly changing anyway. I appreciated the walking tour ideas, especially the fact that it includes an estimate of the time it takes to get from stop to stop. I don't like to make strict travel plans or be weighed down by big guidebooks, so I found the walking tours, as well as the themed tours (Romantic Paris, Art Lovers Paris etc.) very helpful and I loved the fact that I could stash it in my purse to consult the Metro map when I needed to. It was easy to use the book as a starting point and then start exploring on your own. I actually read this series of books before other guidebooks now to get my imagination going when I'm preparing for a trip. I'd totally recommend this one for someone who's interested in soaking up the city.

My wife and I spent 3 days in Paris based on this book's recommendation. I'll guarantee you...you will get lost on your 2nd day, and you'll be bored to death on your 3rd day unless if you enjoy shopping over sightseeing. Here is my advice...Do not spend too much time wasting at unknown (less-known) places like what this book is recommending.
