From "San Francisco As You Like It: Over 20 Tailor-Made Tours for Culture Vultures, Shopaholics .

Even though I grew up here and can never fully realize the wondrous revelation of seeing San Francisco for the very first time, I imagine that for many it's a life-changing experience.

A refreshing antidote to the standard, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink travel guide, San Francisco as You Like It takes over 20 character types ? from grandmothers and parents with toddlers in tow, to savvy natives, neo-bohemians, and epicureans ? and creates special tours that crisscross the city to satisfy their specific likes, needs, and preferences. Instead of reviewing attractions, hotels, restaurants, and everything else by category or location, this book presents its recommendations through customized itineraries that cater to the people who will use them. Using this unique organizational tool, it becomes the definitive insiders guide to the city ? a perfect companion for visitors and locals alike. San Francisco native Bonnie Wach understands that where you want to go in this incredibly diverse city depends on who you are (or who you want to be). Her advice is practical, funny, and deeply rooted in San Francisco's exotic history and quirky character.

As a Bay Area native I love this book and have given it as a gift several times. It is full of well designed, thoughtful tours for all different types of people. I hope she is able to publish an updated version. Buy this book, you'll love it.
  • Androrim
As a San Franciscan, this book is the perfect gift and/or inspiration to entertain friends, family or even yourself.
The author's approach orients the reader and eliminates the clutter of the average guide book. The book also has a nice balance between indoor and outdoor activities that you will be tempted to do over and over.
This is the perfect book for those looking for both the obvious and the obscure in San Francisco.
  • Nettale
This book is a great way to get to know SF. As a local, you can do all the things you're "supposed to do" that you haven't done, even though you've lived here for years. Visitors to the city will get a great mix of must-do tourist attractions, and an inside peek into the many things that make San Francisco great that don't begin with "Fish" or "Golden" - a real local flavor.
The author is a regular contributor to the SF Chronicle Newspaper, and her articles are always a treat. She has a great writing style and is extremely witty - this book is actually an entertaining read straight up even if you're not looking for a guide book. She "gets" San Francisco and passes it on to you.
Especially invaluable if you have friends/family coming to SF and you need to show off our little city by the bay, but can't for the life of you remember anything to show them, except for things starting with "Fish" and "Golden". Many chapters that customize a visit to SF for each visitor type - from that "interesting older aunt" to the "wornout by the kids couple". It's a lifesaver when you're expected to give someone the "SF Experience".

This is one of my favorite guidebooks to one of my favorite cities. Witty and funny writing style. Filled with interesting detail and juicy tidbits, yet at the same time simple to navigate. The approach is clever too - tailor made tours for a wide variety of perspectives and preferences. Even though I used to live in SF and know it fairly well, I've gotten so that I don't visit The City without this book.
  • Malanim
As a San Francisco resident of nearly 20 years, I loved this book. It is not a typical, boring guidebook, but rather a very well written, witty book that reads more like a novel. There are many places that Wach writes about that I have never heard of and I am so glad that I recently purchased this book. A must read for San Franciscans!
  • Weetont
All I can say is that not only have I bought a copy, but I have given three away as gifts. It is great guide for anyone visiting San Francisco or for anyone hosting visitors.
