    The reviews below don't rate the book, they rate the readability

    The reviews below don't rate the book, they rate the readability on an e-reader. The book itself is great, if you can get your hands on it. I found it extremely useful on my trip to Italy last year.

    Do NOT buy in Nook format!

    The problem with Nook versions of these travel guides is that maps and tables can't easily be read. Although you can increase the font size of text on the Nook, maps and tables are not able to be enlarged. If you are reading on the black and white, original Nook, they are especially difficult to read because you don't see color variations. I purchased several travel guides in Nook format for my upcoming trip to Italy, but find I need to lug along the heavy hard copies of the guides and phrase books because the Nook versions are pretty much useless.
