Praise for city-pick

  • 'Superb ... it's like having your own Kindle loaded with different tomes, except with the best passages, bite-sized chunks, just perfect to dip into' The Times 'Brilliant ... the best way to get under the skin of a city. The perfect read for travellers and book lovers of all ages' Kate Mosse 'What a great idea! A sublime introduction.' The Sydney Morning Herald 'Tired of the usual guides? Can't be bothered with apps? Meet the alternative.' Wanderlust 'The beauty of this clever series is the breadth and reach of its contributors' Real Travel Magazine 'We love the city-pick books. They're right up our street!' Lonely Planet Traveller
