This review is for the Nook version of this book; the printed book might be different (and I hope so). This is the first Lonely Planet guide that I thought was really not very good. Perhaps it is trying to do too many things to be able to them well. My main complaint is that it is almost like a cliff's notes version of a LP guidebook. It gives info about travel, housing, and dining but almost nothing about the actual sites in the cities I was interested in. My wife and I went on a trip to Prague, Krakow, and Vienna and purchased both this book and Rick Steves' Eastern Europe guidebook. Of the two Rick Steves was MUCH better. He has descriptions of sites, histories, etc., that I expect in the LP guidebook but which were lacking. If I could take only one book, I would go with Rick Steves. The LP book is really not very useful when you are actually on-site. Both the books (Steves' and LP's) are very long and occasionally caused our Nook Simple Touches to lag or even glitch badly enough to warrant a reboot. Running them on a color Nook or a tablet (with the Nook software) might work better, but we love the huge battery life of the eInk readers.
