A small fold-out mapbook, arguably the most concise and practical guide to Beirut. Includes listings on where to shop, eat & stay. Most importantly it includes maps and information to vibrant neighborhoods, where one can experience the non-cosmetically enhanced Beirut, eg. the Armenian quarter of Bourj Hammoud, in addition to the more central areas of Hamra, Achrafieh, Gemmayze, and Downtown (Solidere).
A brief introduction to local foods, customs, and architecture make this a valuable guide, in spite of its pocket size & format.
Unfortunately it's out of print, but if you are lucky you may come across a copy at one of the several used book shops or out-of-the-way souvenir shop as happened with me.
