We got this book from the library and after looking through it we thought it was a really good book so we ended up buying it through Powell's. It's a great way to find out about cheap or even free things that are going on in your city that we never would have thought of otherwise. Like with any guide book things in it can go out of date quickly so make sure you want to be using it as soon as you buy it so that you have the most up-to-date version.
