Lonely Planet had a few mistakes the last time I used it in London; it was the lack of updating.
I like Rough Guide or Let’s Go.

If you’re interested in a single city guide for London (as opposed to a general guide book for UK or for Europe), check out some at the book store.  Avoid books that seem to focus too much on shopping and pick the one with the best map.
