First, the digital app they make you download takes 2 days before releasing a license, so no "day of" downloading which is annoying. Then, every time you open the app it has to re-bring up the book. Three toggle was cool though and bookmarking worked well. The book has a lot of info and rich history about the area. The pictures were good, but sometimes didn't have a caption. Certain problems weren't listed very accurately (like the impressionist), and I had to read the description of entire areas at times to figure out a sub area. I think some descriptions could've been more accurate; it seems like the author wasn't putting himself in the shoes of a newcomer very well. Love the area though, and I will be back, and overall it worked for us.
