Praise for This Is Portland:
"Is it the best book ever written about Portland, OR by a guy from Vermont? You bet your ass!" –Wieden+Kennedy
"Barrett’s witty tribute, This is Portland, is composed of micro-essays on what keeps Portland weird (and great), from $3 movies and backyard chickens to tattoos and tater tots. Another Powell’s bestseller, this Portland primer is must-read material for visitors and residents alike." –Travel Portland
In the same vein as his other two travel guides, This Is Portland and This Is Shanghai, Andrew Barrett again plays quirky tour guide in This is San Francisco. Distilling the charm of San Francisco into this little book, he makes a pretty good case for why this city is so magical by revealing what its true vibe is. Come along on a walk down one of San Francisco’s historic streets or up one of its urban staircases. Through thoughtful and funny anecdotes, essays, and illustrations, Barrett takes you on a journey through one of America’s most famous cities and makes you wish you were right there with him.
