I bought this book to enjoy the photos of artwork and buildings, etc. Being neither an artist nor a historian (and having limited time), this book gave me a great overview of the history of Paris, though I wasn't really interested in the history of Paris. So, if you want to "see" some history of Paris, I highly suggest this book. The author did a marvelous job of condensing (or perhaps illuminating) some otherwise boring parts of this history so that you could actually like it...remember, I'm not a history buff. These little "chunky" books are really quite educational: the glossary in back explains unfamiliar terms of architecture: do you know the difference between a socle panel and a pilaster? Thought so. These books are about 500 pages, but turn quickly as there are pictures on every page. Also, enjoyable are little 'cameo' articles about specific people or events, such as 'the language police' of France, "a walk through the Jewish side of Paris", "Fashion--naturally", an article about the Gobelin tapestries, and much more. There are other books in this series, and, so far, they have all been worth the price. Plus, they look really cool on my shelf!

The book contains some very nice photographs, and some very sloppy editting.

Within a minute of opening the book, I found a photograph with the caption "A view of the Ile de la Cite". Well, too bad, because it was actually a view of the pont Alexandre with a view towards the Invalides. I thought "Oh, someone pasted the wrong caption. No big deal".

But within less than a minute later, I saw a two-page photograph of the front of George Whitman's Shakespeare and Co. and the caption read "A famous bookstore on rue de l'Odeone, St Michel". Well, well, well, that's too bad because Shakespeare and Co is on the rue Bucherie and Quai de Montebello, in the 5th, facing the Notre Dame, since more than 50 years. One the other hand, the earlier Shakespeare and Co of Sylvia Beach was indeed in rue de l'Odeone, in the 6th. So what's going on? That's not a simple mistake in assigning a caption to a photograph.

It's seems to me that whoever wrote the captions collected the information from the web, mixed it all up, and put something on paper. Which is really too bad. How do I know if some of the other 'facts' on topics that I know nothing about are correct?
