As a map/guide from Harvard University's Let's Go staff, who are located across the Charles River from Boston, in Cambridge, MA, you'd think that turning out an accurate map and list of sites for their home city would be a piece of cake- however it's first edition was filled with innacuracies, including map errors- an eggregious sin for any travel guide. I have not seen this '98 reprint, I hope that it has been corrected!!! As someone who went to university in Boston and worked in a bookstore frequented by visitors, I was pleased to be able to recommend two map guides that are far superior to this- both by the Professor Pathfinder company. One covers the Harvard University and Environs, and the other covers the MIT campus and Back Bay area, the two hot spots for tourists in Boston. It is accurate and gives extremely detailed maps of neighborhoods, incl. shop names and similar information, which is a great navigational help.

I recently used this guide for a week trip to boston. I am relatively familiar with the city, but this guide made it much easier to navigate. the maps folded out to show Boston in an easy way to understand. The actual text was concise and accurate, as far as I could tell. It gave just the right information that I needed for my trip, such as places to eat, where to see movies, how to get to each place and phone numbers. I used it many many times a day and learned a lot more about the city than i would have, had i explored solely on my own. I highly recommend this guide to anyone who will ever spend time in Boston and hates the big books that give you too much information. The only thing lacking was a guide to art galleries.
