Little is on the newer edition that is not on this one, and vice versa. The modern and already iconic city hall was in this map's future, however. This guide or the updated 2nd edition are the best maps I've found for visiting London.
Rough Guides have always been my favorites, and this was no exception. It provides a comprehensive guide to all areas of the city of London, and includes hotels, cafes, pubs, shopping, etc. It also makes for an entertaining read, although I question how much the author actually likes living in London. (The book actually states that "disappointingly, London has had only 2 assassinations." This is a disappointment?!) In addition to the sections on each part of the city, the appendix has a decent history of London, as well as a list of other books about the city.

For anyone who plans to spend a substantial amount of time in London, this will be an indispensable guide. I tend to leave the country for a couple months at a time, and thus rely completely on these guides. However, it's not the best choice if you simply plan on going for a weekend, since there is no way you'll be able to do and see it all....I would then suggest something like Frommer's Top Ten: London instead.
This book gives ou a nice overview of the region, and incredible specific tips for visiting London.
I tend to like the rough guides, they go into much detail on the sites. An alternative is an audio guide. soundwalks(i think more for NYC) and [...] are also great for london guides.

The rough guides I think are one of the better alround books.
I love the entire Rough Guide series of books! They have great maps, provide detail of all the different eating options, sightseeing options, have phone numbers, hours of operation... just everything you would need in one small book!! I've bought the Rough Guide for several different trips in different locations and always been very pleased! I didn't make it to London on my last trip to Europe but it's in the book case ready for our future trip there!!!
