We have just returned from a trip to Prague and Vienna. Avant Guide to Prague was absolutely invaluable and the best by far of any guide we used. Visiting Vienna afterwards, we sorely wished that you had written one on that city, too the other travel resources we used were not nearly as complete or informative as this guide had been for Prague. We look forward to the publication of additional Avant guides in the future!
I am a guidebook junkie, and I absolutely loved this book. The restaurant, shop and nightlife suggestions are spot-on. This guide is obviously written by people who not only know the town like the back of their hands, but they have a good sense of what quality means. My only complaint about this book is that people we met wanted to borrow it all the time. Even my friends in Prague. This deserves all the stars it can get.
