Format: Paperback
I travel to Europe a couple times a year for business -without a corporate budget! I needed a guide book that would help me find reasonable places to stay and the main sites to see in various European countries during my trips. (I rarely go to the same city twice.)

The Rough Guides are GREAT guide books. They are not for the backpacker crowd like Lonely Planet tends to be, nor the rich. Rough Guides cater to that middle crowd - me. Their single country or city guides go into great detail on each location. Don't miss these guidebooks if you are traveling extensively in one country. However, that's too much for my 2-3 day visits. That's where the "Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget" comes in.

The Guide covers 30 countries and appears to be an update of the The Rough Guide to Europe 2006 (Rough Guide Travel Guides). It gives a brief history, tips on culture, hotel and dining recommendations. It lists details on the top sightseeing sites. The photos and maps are better than many other publishers' single-country guide books. On my recent trips I found I was just as informed as my colleagues who invested (weight being a larger consideration than cost) in a single country guidebook.

"The Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget" has plenty of information for the business or limited time traveler. If you are going to spend a week in a country sightseeing upgrade to a single country guidebook.

such a broad guide that in the end it becomes a mere list of country and city names too chuncky to be happily carried around

People don't buy books like Rick Steves that have no money concerns. It's the opposite, people on a budget know if they can save on their meals or lodging they can sgueeze in one more day or one more place. If a travel guide can do this, it's a bargain at almost any price if it does'nt there's not going to be a next time. Dig a little deeper for better priced places to stay even out of town a little way, and eating places, Rick, if you don't want to go to them send a staffer. Find an Adam Richmond to hire, give him the money you spend on one meal for him for him to spend for 5 days have him have someone snap a picture identfying the restaurants and food and have a bill to submit. Maybe have a small entertainment section in the back of the book with the staffer at some of the locations so they can walk by and say,"hey that was really a placemaybe we should try it." Tell him or her it's all about integrity. Do the samething with places to stay. Then us readers will have something we'll want to read.
