Great book, great series. Gets into a bit of history but not be big technobabble dive into every detail. The pick some of the highlights of the city with enough detail to help you navigate most parts of being in that place. This isn't a copied from wiki guide book, there is real research and knowledge.

This book is a must have for Expats living in Shanghai, or anyone wanting to get to know the city better. The authors provide wonderful details so that the reader/walker can easily find their way, complete with ping ying and characters so that you can direct a taxi driver as to where you'd like to begin your walk. I like having the flexibility to grab the book and pick out a walk on my own time and not have to wait for a guided tour - this book provides tons of details no need for a guide!
