Library Journal Review

Almost as good as a trip to London, this marvelous book provides an eclectic tour of one of the world's greatest cities. Not quite a guidebook, but not a coffee-table tome, either, London is a visual feast with a breezy style to match. The book is divided into eight sectionsÄthe West End, Westminster, the Thames, the City of London, the villages of London, the heart of London, historical London, and London's character and charactersÄand concludes with a brief Who's Who, a list of books and films about London, a glossary, and a helpful index. The only glaring omission is that there is no detailed map of the city; otherwise, this is a beautiful and readable book. Highly recommended for most public libraries.ÄJanet N. Ross, Washoe Cty. Lib.
