The details on where to catch the shared taxi for Shakhrisabz from Samarkand in the LP are correct, but the price stated in the book at USD9 (black market rate) for the ride is too high. It's more like USD4-5 and the taxi takes you all the way to Kok-Gumbaz Mosque; I insisted on this.

Coming back is slightly trickier as I had to walk 10 mins towards the main road by turning right after the main ruins. Here I took marshrutka to Kitab for USD0.20 then I had my lunch at the market and only after this I went to catch the taxi for Samarkand. The taxi stand is 300m from the junction where the bazaar is, people were helpful by pointing out to the right direction. The shared taxi fare from Kitab to Samarkand was USD3.40, and of course, negotiations needed.
