Given that, I was disappointed when I browsed this book in the store. The page layout is nice, but a very high proportion of the walks seemed oriented to ghost stories, Jack the Ripper, and similar "spooky" or Gothic interests. Where are the historically-themed or literary walks? Also, while each walk seemed to have eating spots noted, I didn't see shopping mentioned. So, this book was a pass for me.
On a final note, I just want to say that the person(s) who wrote 24 Walks has explained every single turn and crossing you have to make in such detail that you cannot get lost, especially that each walk also comes with a very detailed map. I would also recommend that you do not only rely on this book for your trip to London. You will definitely benefit from the more basic London 2009 book. Use 24 walks as an added addition to London 2009.
