Good: I enjoyed reading about history of Morocco, and several other general chapters at the end of the book.
Not so good: Little maps and diagrams within the book aren't very useful, mainly because Morocco streets are nearly impossible to navigate with or without a map; you need a guide if you're visiting for the first time. Finding a hotel (or riad) is only possible if you get someone to show you the way, unless that hotel is on the main plaza or street.
Even when you show the map to a local, they usually can't figure out what the map shows, because they are not used to seeing English names and words. Even the cab driver's couldn't figure out where we wanted to go when we showed them the maps.
Restaurant and coffee recommendations also weren't very useful; partly because these places are impossible to find. It's much better to roam around and find restaurants by yourself. Stay away from the main plaza in Marrakesh if you want tasty food. Instead, go into any of the side streets and find a place that looks good. I've had some of the best dinners there.
If you're looking for riads, you need to do so online, where you can see photos and people's comments. So this book could have been much smaller if they eliminated specific restaurant and hotel guides.
Compact, informative, easy to read, interesting and occasionally entertaining.
The only source book needed for our 16 days of hiking in the south west Sahara.
We rate the item 4 out of 5.
