I bought the Kindle version of this ebook. simply so you know., not like a few reviewers who evaluation books sooner than they move, i really were to San Francisco. This e-book was once choked with attention-grabbing tidbits and recommendations. complete part on background of the town. the knowledge was once strong and helped me to plot out my brief enterprise remain in San Francisco. i used to be capable of make plans to perform a little sight seeing within the small period of time that i might have after my conferences have been over on the finish of the day. in spite of the fact that, it's not a superb speedy consultant for the digital model. I needed to return to my notes part time and time back simply because occasionally that groovy top eating place that was once pointed out firstly of the ebook, or the in the event you simply have 1 day part, was once now not truly delineated within the urban part phase, or the eating place part. I discover they most likely have been making an attempt to not bore the reader through repeating whatever, however it is very troublesome to learn anything within the advisor publication, yet then be in the street with the e-book and check out to make a short determination approximately the place to steer your crew subsequent for those who cannot locate the tidbit back. I/m now not even yes that it'd be more straightforward in a paper again shape both.
Maps aren't legible on a Kindle regardless of zoom characteristic. may were nice on the way to see bus routes and Subway stops and schedules additionally. So whereas it gave me nice info, i think that the association of the advisor booklet leaves a lot to be wanted. i purchase consultant books not just to coach me, but in addition to be easy accessibility publications to take besides me for fast connection with alongside my trip. This one falls flat of that for me.
