I loved the Japan Lonely Planet book, so thought this would be a safe bet. Big mistake.
This book is really poorly edited; several of the listed attractions/sights didn't appear in their corresponding maps, or appeared in the map of a completely different section. Furthermore, the Taipei chapter is horribly, horribly organized. Normally, Lonely Planet books are organized by location, and then by Sights, Nightlife, Food, etc., making it easy to plan trips to each location. However, the Taipei chapter is organized by Sights, Nightlife, Food, etc. and then subdivided by location. What this means is, if you want to find stuff to do in North Taipei, you're going to have to flip to six different chapters, find the right reference to the location, and write it down. It makes it such a chore, and if you're getting this book for Taipei in particular, turn away now.
Terrible editing, terrible organization, terrible product.
