The book is small and lightweight. It's a 4" X 7.5" paperback (126 pages), so it will be easy to take along on the trip. It also won't draw a lot of attention when I pull it out while dining. A few pages are devoted to the basics of dining in Paris. About a quarter of the book includes recommendations for specific places to eat. The details provided are good and contact information (including website, if applicable) is included. There's a map of Paris in the back, which cross-references the restaurants listed in the Recommendations section.
The bulk of the book, however, is a translation guide for food. You have to have this, unless you know the cuisine of a country. What's great about this book is that there's an English to French section (e.g. Shrimp = Crevettes), as well as a lengthier, French to English section (e,g., Pelardons = Goat Cheese).
My partner and I are mostly vegetarian, so it's important for us to identify what the food is we're ordering. I don't think it was in this book, but I remember reading that if you tell someone in France you're vegetarian, they assume you don't eat beef, but most other meats aren't included in that classification.
Anyhow, I'm taking this book with us on the trip. For me, it was s great find.
