Over the past 25 years, downtown Boston has changed in some significant way almost daily. A construction boom touched every corner of the city and transformed the South Boston waterfront. New hotels sprouted, in both custom-built structures and thoughtful transformations of historic buildings. And most important, a gargantuan construction project with a cute name (the Big Dig) dragged on for over a decade, making a mile-long strip of prime real estate look like a scene from a horror movie. Today, the elevated highway that once sliced across the city like a green scar is a distant memory, and the green we see everywhere comes from the trees, plants, and flowers that took its place.
Completely updated every year, Frommer's Boston features gorgeous color photos of the sights and experiences that await you.
Our author, a longtime resident of Boston's North End, hits all the highlights, from Fenway Park to the Freedom Trail. She's checked out all the city's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offers authoritative, candid reviews that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget.
You'll also get up-to-the-minute coverage of shopping and nightlife; in-depth coverage of Cambridge; detailed walking tours; accurate neighborhood maps; advice on planning a successful family vacation; and side trips to Lexington, Concord, Plymouth, and the North Shore.
Frommer's Boston also includes a color fold-out map.

Handbook of Floating-Point Arithmetic
Floating-point arithmetic is by far the most widely used way of implementing real-number arithmetic on modern computers. Although the basic principles of floating-point arithmetic can be explained in a short amount of time, making such an arithmetic reliable and portable, yet fast, is a very difficult task. From the 1960s to the early 1980s,...
