The book does a nice job of laying out restaurants, hotels, sites to visit, ways of touring the city, and so on. There are so many possible places to visit, eat, and stay that no volume can cover things completely.
Nonetheless, this book is a good resource to begin planning a vacation in the Big Apple. It's well worth purchasing as a means of figuring out the basic outlines of a visit to New York.
