This is a great guide to a fascinating city. Seoul can be a little overwhelming for first timers and this is easily one of the better guides to help travellers find their way around. As a semi-regular visitor to South Korea, it's a shame I wasn't aware of this book before my first trip, but it's still a helpful source of information to keep on hand.
One negative is the dubious production quality. Aside from a short colour section, the pages are printed on cheap paper with murky b/w image reproduction. A minor quibble, perhaps.
As I pushed through the chronically jamming revolving door into the public library of Zero, Mississippi, I could hear a considerable uproar echoing through the lobby. It was the Mayor yelling at the Director, who was so frightened she failed to notice me, a bit like Ahab missing Moby Dick. The Mayor was waving Moon's Seoul Handbook, by J. Hopfner, as it turned out.
The echoes and the roaring of the air conditioner and the Coke machine made it hard for me to understand what the Mayor was mad about this time. It was only later that the man at the Solutions Desk told me that it was Moon's Seoul had set off his inner dog.
Once again, the Zero Public Library, the had brought opprobrium upon itself by an untimely de-accession. However, this time it wasn't the Library's fault, as the solutionist told me. The book was falling apart.
Yes indeed. All the coloratura stuff, the first forty pages of the book, had fallen out by the return from the second check-out...
