For readers who are tired of the promotional fluff and brochure-speak that characterizes most travel guides, here s a fresh voice. The Irreverent Guides offer an insider s look at each destination, and take a fun, honest look at everything they review. It s not every day you open up a guidebook to find categories like: c Won t bore the kids c Eurotrashiest hotels c Was that RuPaul in the elevator? c Hotels for people who hate conventioneers c Luscious love nests and lavender lodgings c Restaurants that don t live up to the hype c Swingin supper clubs with attitude c Painting the town with three babes and a bus The Irreverents give you the lowdown, the inside story. They have nothing to sell but the truth, which includes a balance of good and bad. They praise, they trash, they weigh, and leave the final decision up to the reader. Our writers take a special pleasure in leading you where other guides fear to tread. Look for a brand-new cover design this season!
