Review

This is an excellent up-to-the-minute  guide to New York City and the things that you “must see”.  With the recommendations and “what’s new” and warnings on what to avoid, it basically feels like you are getting sight-seeing advice from a knowledgeable New York City insider and friend. It’s light enough to carry with you, which is always a bonus.  Top 10 New York City is an excellent value from the best guide around to take with you on a trip to the Big Apple.

    Review

    This is a fantastic book with creepy locations from around the world.  In here you will find photos and information about some fascinating places and some interesting stories that will both thrill and chill.  It is a bit spooky and provides overviews of places that are connected to the occult and I must warn you that it is a bit graphic and not all photographs are suitable for children. For those reasons I wouldn’t consider it “family friendly”.  However, it is a well constructed book that provides the right atmosphere in each section while being very informative.  If you are fan of spooky places, you will like this book and it will give you plenty of ideas for travel.
