    If I could recommend any book for someone interested in having a serious and
detailed guidebook of Istanbul, then this would be it. This book organizes the historical
monuments in the city by time period and provides handy maps. The real value of this
book however, is the great detail that is given in describing what is found at each
monument. With this book, you would not need a tour guide. The book also contains
interesting sections on Iznik, Bursa and Edirne. A reminder though that this book does
not try to give details about accommodations, restaurants, or contain colour pictures of
the monuments described.
