Overall, this is a great tour guide to take with you on your trip to New Orleans, whether it is your first time or second. I have no hesitation in recommending this one. Only qualm I have about this guide in that no ratings are available, as found in Frommer's or Fodor's travel guides.
Because these guides are concise, beautifully illustrated, relatively compact, and impeccably organized, I cannot recommend highly enough the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Travel Guides! The DK Eyewitness Travel Guide is THE guide I buy for every destination. Not only do I get a quick history and background of the destination, but I also will be provided with a visual guide to everything. The visual detail is really what sets the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides apart.
The street maps of common destination points are drawn in dimensional detail so you will visually recognize when you "get there." This is particularly helpful when you don't speak the native language.
The regional maps are colorful and concise. However, the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide really shows its stuff with the drawings associated with attractions such as museums. Their presentation of museum layouts allow the traveler who is short on time to quickly see the best of the museum within the time the traveler has to spend.
Each DK Eyewitness Travel Guide has a good summary section in the back with practical information about where to eat, where to sleep, what to do, and how to get around.
While I may supplement the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide with others for a more detailed travel guide, the other guide is only more to read, not more to see. Buy the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide first for any destination.

This book was very helpful in planning my first visit to New Orleans.Published 21 months ago by Cruizer
After Katrina having a comprehensive map and list of places that were open was essential. This was one of our "go to" books. A great tool for a successful vacation.Published on November 7, 2013 by NativeNYer

This book had the basic information we needed, but I just did not like the format. We always use Rick Steve's books, but he does not do places in the US. Read morePublished on July 11, 2013 by AleeCee
