It gives me more information than guide books can provide improving the experince.
ROBERT H BLUMBERG
Although I read it in its entirety and found it consistently well-written and absorbing, I could imagine using it more informally on a short visit to the city.

Excellent, well-written book about one of the great cities of the world. Orderly, logical structure for the first-time visitor as well as for those who visit Prague often or live there. Not only a good writer but an accurate, non-revisionist historian. A pleasure to read and to share with others.

This unusual book covers Prague from a geographical perspective but does so much more through the addition of literature, politics, architecture, music, and the arts. I was amazed by the depth of this book and planned on contacting the author to express my appreciation. Unfortunately, he has passed on to my great disappointment.

Format: Paperback
To experience Prague fully, and to understand the human significance of the complex and layered beauty so evident in Prague, there may be no better guide for the English speaker. While living in Prague, I was amazed by how thoroughly this author informed and heightened my experience of the city, its art, its history through the centuries, and its inhabitants. Well-researched without being academic or pretentiously intellectual. Although I read it in its entirety and found it consistently well-written and absorbing, I could imagine using it more informally on a short visit to the city. The index is very complete and can be used to look up monuments, neighborhoods, artists, cultural movements, and historical figures for a far more enriched perspective than that of an EyeWitness-tyoe guide or an internet search engine.

My wife and I will be spending 10 days in Prague in April. When I travel I like to read historical and cultural literature about the location before I arrive. It gives me more information than guide books can provide improving the experince. In preparation, based on the reviews above, I read this book. The reviews are understated. This book deserves six stars! It is about the best book I have read about any city I have travelled to. I've gained an insight in to the places and peoples of Prague that will enrich our trip.
