Tim and Nina Zagat are expanding their empire of guidebooks. Famous for restaurant guides, they've branched out into books recommending hotels, music — even golf courses. The ratings are compiled on the basis of input from ordinary people, not professional reviewers. The Zagats speak with NPR's John Ydstie.
