Bought this book in advance of our trip to Turkey and found it an excellent reference book to use while vacationing. It's great as a tour guide, with detailed explantions and dieagrams on some of the major sites in Turkey but rather weak in the hotel and where to eat sections. You're better off with Frommers or Fodor's for that.
Hint: Don't buy the companion Eyewitness Guide for Istanbul. About 90% of that guide is found in this book.
