About the Author

Timothy Speed Levitch descends from immigrants who passed through Ellis Island at the turn-of-the-century. A writer, tour guide, and actor, Levitch has performed in films such as The Cruise and Waking Life. His short film entitled Live From Shiva's Dance Floor won a special jury prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. His walking tour of Wall Street was published in The Outlaw Bible of American Essays and several of his walking tours of New York neighborhoods are collected in the book, Speedology. Levitch has also designed tours in San Francisco, Chicago and Kansas City. Speed's tours are as much about a city and its history as they are about human problems of intimacy and psychology.

Format: Paperback
Blows conventional travel guides out of the water! I fell in love with New York: The Pegleg just reading the description. With any luck, Levitch's work will become the standard for travel guides!

This book/game is awesome. I love how I was able to learn all of those intimate details about the big city that are difficult to get otherwise. The best part is that playing the game *requires* you to pay attention to the details of your surroundings in order to solve each enigma. I hear the iPhone app version of the book is great as well, but it depends on the experience that you want from the product. The iPhone app gives a more rapid, social experience, while the book gives a cultural one.

In any case, the book is highly recommended.

If you want to learn about NYC in a fun and unconventional way you MUST buy this book. This experience has been great to me, I have been able to travel through the city and learn all sorts of things about it. I must confess that after NYC every time I want to visit a new city I go search if I can find a WhaiWhai guide.

Definitely recommended.
