Ariela Bankier is an author and a journalist. She has been living and traveling in Tuscany for the past decade. A curious foodie and a shameless hedonist herself, she boasts such talents as spotting the best focaccia in town in under 30 minutes, locating the finest restaurants in the region, finding chic boutiques and memorable panoramic spots, and infiltrating medieval festivals. She can often be found roaming the countryside, looking for the ultimate pecorino cheese. Her previous travel guides have received stellar reviews.

Great supplement to other guides. We found some great cheese shops, winery recommendations, and cool places to check out from the book. All stuff that isn't in the typical guidebook, and all places that were the highlight of our trip!
Tuscany for the Shameless Hedonist is an alternative guidebook - quirky, opinionated, and full of (mostly) good advice not available (as far as I know) elsewhere. No general lists of sights, restaurants, and hotels; you will still need a conventional guidebook for all that. Arranged by region, this is a collection of particularly recommended places to stay, to eat, to shop, to sightsee, Very helpful in deciding, which winery to visit, where to hear music, how find regional specialties. Good advice for the rich (not us), but also for those rich in curiosity. Good source for contact information, and the Kindle edition has useful embedded links. I hope the second edition will have an INDEX, which would enhance the usefulness of this guide (especially for Kindle readers).
