Excerpt

As this book represents the first genus of a new species--the economic guidebooK--a certain explanation is necessary.

If you are a tourist in Paris and have a guidebook in hand, you can easily learn the city by yourself. If you pay the equivalent of a penny to buy a one-paragraph guide, you might read the following:

Start at the Ile de la cité and visit the cathedral of Notre Dame, which is the most famous cathedral of Paris. Construction started in 1163. Note particularly the rose windows. Then cross the Seine to the right bank, walk south one-half mile along the river to the Louvre. Former home of the kings of France, it now houses the best art collection in France. The renaissance collection is particularly impressive. Take Bus 72 going south and get off at the Eiffel tower. Built in 1887 it provides a magnificent view of the city. Watch out for pickpockets.
