Not for Tourists Guide to Washington DC 2010, half anti-guidebook, half urban manual, is the ultimate little black book. It reveals everything from where to find the most impressive monuments, parks and universities to the best bowling lanes and yoga classes, or simply the best place to eat on a Friday night and meet friends for cocktails. Whether you've called Washington DC your home for decades or just arrived last night, you ignore at your peril this new 2010 edition with its caustic neighbourhood summaries and refreshing, politically incorrect descriptions. Meticulously researched and written by folks who actually live there, NFT presents the city along with its good, its bad and its downright hideous. In over 300 pages of glorious content, the pocket-sized survival handbook features simply everywhere, from Downtown and Greater District to Maryland and NoVA South, also covering the city's colleges, universities and sports grounds. Designed for street-savvy locals, commuters, business travellers, and yes, tourists, NFT Washington DC includes a highly graphical map for every neighbourhood (and college campus) featured. User-friendly map icons highlight everything from coffee shops, supermarkets, landmarks, liquor stores, banks and libraries, to hardware stores, gas stations, gyms and pharmacies. So if you're meeting friends in an unfamiliar part of the city or find yourself off the beaten track, NFT is a must-have resource. But NFT doesn't waste your time by serving up five zillion options just because they're in a database: contributors have gone back to eat, drink, dance and shop their way through last year's listings to check that they're still worth knowing.

Reviews

Take an A-Z, mix it with a Lonely Planet and throw in all the things a guide book should NEVER say and voila, you get the Not for Tourists Guide" - The Observer a most useful book for visitors, full of imaginative advice on shops, sights and restaurants - and jampacked with invaluable maps" - The Mail on Sunday "The new must-have resource (the Yellow Pages are so over)." - Chicago "...an answer to a prayer." - CBS Newsradio " - for people who don't want to be seen carrying a guidebook." - The New Yorker " - a series of guides designed to make you feel like a local." - CNN "NFT books keep you from looking like that most loathed of public figures: the guy with the map." - Men's Journal " - sleek, black, concise - " - Men's Journal "Survival handbooks for natives -- but they can be lifesavers for visitors as well." - Boston Globe "It's not quite Lonely Planet, and it's not quite the Yellow Pages, but NFT may be their bastard child." - Toronto Star " - the anti-guidebook. It empowers visitors - and locals - to make all their own decisions." - Toronto Star
