I have purchased several guides to Paris prior to my trip. They all were quite good, but in the end this was the only one I took with me, and I was pleased with my decision. My hotels were reserved well ahead of time and I was aware of various practicalities, e.g., how to use Metro and RER, where to buy groceries, etc. What I needed was a guide to various sites and a set of walking tours with maps. And this Michelin guide was perfect for that. The quality of the binding, paper, print, and maps is very high making reading the guide more pleasurable than some other guides I have.

I would definitely use it on future trips to Paris, and will be buying updated editions depending on how soon that will be.

Since 1964 I have relied on Le Guide Michelin to navigate France, then Italy and New England. What a marvelous tool: accurate, scholarly, informative, in a word, definitive. And indexed to the hilt for easy navigation.

Alas, the electronic edition is essentially unsearchable. Keywords are useless to do the type of search required for the what, when, where, and how so essential to making the most of - for Americans in Europe - an expensive trip. I have stood fumbling ineffectually with my iPad and iPhone while the other members of my party stood by in patient boredom. I usually had mercy, and gave up the search.

I can fumble on my own. The treasure of information contained in the ebook Michelin Guides is safely locked inside, the clumsy navigation is the lock without a key. You can peer through the keyhole and glimpse the wonders within, but you can't make them your own.

Buy the real book. And this is the advice of a New Yorker who has so little room for more books or CDs that he downloads everything.

The Michelin guides are a classic anywhere in Europe, and this one for Paris really shines. We relied a lot on the self guided walking tours in the book, and they were just fantastic.

This edition is just one in long line of editions on Paris. I have owned one or more for the past 40 yrs. I would never travel to Paris without one.

The Green Guide is the basecamp for Paris travel books. The book's limitation, in Kindle form, anyway, is that it is not so easily searchable. The index does not suffice. A Kindle word search discloses references to an address equally with references to the thing I'm looking for. Hence, searching in Kindle app takes more effort than it should.

Obviously, walking 'round Paris, it's easier to carry the Kindle version than the physical book, so that makes a trade-off.

Like so many of the Michelin green guides, this is an indispensable companion when you visit Paris. Even though I had been there several times before, it opened my eyes to a lot of neighborhoods and sites that I had not previously seen. Also highly recommend Seven Ages of Paris by Alistair Horne -- you will never see the Louvre the same again!

This guide is loaded with information, organized by arrondissement, which is great, as many competing volumes which use a short hand nomenclature when describing areas of Paris.

If you are a wanderer...or a "flaneur" as the Parisians might say, this is a good guide. If you need more direction see Mr. Steves' works. Those will transport you quite well through very structured "tours, walks" etc.

I bought this Michelin Guide for my iPad and a lot of the functionality didn't function, for example links between maps and descriptions. The lack of functionality made it useless as a guide. It does contain the excellent Michelin background information, so it wasn't a complete bust...just disappointing.
