Format: Paperback
This is the best coverage of Turkey that I've seen. I've been there many times, and advise this series of books for my friends. The authors are definitely not turkeys.

The best part of the series is the in-depth attention to detail for cultural aspects of the region and the changing face of the middle east. I fear that my first trip would have gone very poorly if I didn't have their advice. Turkey is an odd country, and the authors do a very nice job of simplifying the culture to an extent where you can understand the motivation of the residents with regard to the history and religious influence of the region.

Wow! I'm not usually big on travel writing, but this is no ordinary travel writing. Most guides, especially in series like this one, are shallow and touristy and cobbled together by blatantly untalented hacks whose main qualification is their willingness to work cheap. Not so here, though. Peck & Sachet depict modern Turkey and its imperial predecessors in exquisite detail, weaving modern realities and the rich desiderata of history into a surprisingly enchanting narrative. Technically flawless but still loose and unbridled, "Turkey Guide" does for Istanbul what Joyce's "Ulysses" did for Dublin: it embodies it perfectly. Bravo!

In preparation for a planned sojourn to Turkey I browsed many of the travel guides which are available. I finally settled on this one and have been richly rewarded. Reading this book has provided hours of enjoyment. I would recommend it even for those who do not plan to visit Turkey, although after you read this you will feel that you must go. I would now buy any book written by these two, sight unseen.

Format: Paperback
Unfortunately the content is very superficial and has been written by someone who is not familiar with the Turkish culture.
