I am mever sure that guides will ever fill the knowledge gap you want them to fill when meeting people who live there tell you stuff is so much better. I chose this book after reading all the reviews of the others and applying some pre-judgement to the books on offer. This little book is probably one of the better guides, covering all the main points you'd need before and early on once you have arrived. But as a book to guide you around the town it was nowhere near as useful as a couple of maps our Riad gave us. The resturant section has somethinglike 14 recommendations that didn't include most of the places our Riad hosts suggested - this smacks of some reccomendations based on either very personal choice or smething else is going on - so my opinion is the guide book fails to give enoughh guidence in that section.
Overall an inexpensive little guidebook that fits yourpocket. You will still need maps though.

An OK Guide Which Fits Your PocketReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 February 2015
Marrakech bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 October 2013
Some very good tips here thanks. Perhaps smaller than I imagined, so contained only the basics, but at least that made it lighter to carry! I bought one e-version for my kindle, and one printed version. Just as well, as the maps were too small to be seen in the e-version, as they didn't have a zoom capacity
