Editorial Reviews

Well-researched and impeccably written, the Rough Guides are a great choice for anyone seeking to be an informed, prepared traveler. Due to the fantastic essays, the Rough Guides are as much fun for armchair travelers as they are for those actually on the road. Each edition comes with detailed maps, in-depth essays on the history and culture of each destination, a wide range of lodging options, and recommendations for off-the-beaten-path places to visit. The special attention paid to the writing is a boon for travelers, most of whom find themselves reading the guide cover to cover instead of just looking up their specific itineraries.
Booknews
A fresh presentation about Prague. Along with the usual "sights" the book surveys the history of Prague (one of the oldest cities of Europe), provides glossaries, contains sections for women and children's activities, covers the revolutions occurring in various aspects of Czech political, cultural and economic life. There is much here beyond the travel basics; in short, a great bargain at this price. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
