If you are actually riding the route you'll want to buy proper maps in any case, but don't count on getting even a vague sense of the route from the ones here, which, although printed in full colour, simply connect the dots of the towns and villages on the route: there's no topographic info, no information on the surrounding area, and no street names for the few town maps.
The book includes some pretty pictures, some helpful information on the facilities available in each town on the route, and a little advice on navigating the larger cities. But it won't replace a more comprehensive guidebook and maps. I'll be looking for the German-produced Bikeline guides instead.
The "full kit list" at the back is a hoot. British cyclists of a certain age may agree that the essential items are the mini electric kettle, the teabags, and the bottle-cage thermos, but others will be mystified by those other items: what is Swarfega? Isostar? E111? Pertex? What's a dog-dazer? Why list cycling glasses, spectacles, AND sunglasses? How many riders will be inclined to pack a Dictaphone? However, it's probably wise to follow the author's example and take along "clothes."
I would like better town maps when moving through built up areas. That said the signage is excellent in Germany and Austria so I can see why the author never bothered. In Slovakia and Hungary it would have been helpful.

Fantastic, a must read prior to embarking on your ride along the Danube.Published 14 months ago by John Chadwick
Don't waste your time or your money. Maps are virtually worthless. Text not much better.Published on July 23, 2014 by Richard
Some subtle humor here-and-there where you least expect it.
The breakdown of smaller towns along the route was helpful,
and useful for trip planning.
old but useful as much has changed on the route. Can be helpful for forst time travellers but other texts and maps espicdally those from Omni maps are terrific.Published on February 28, 2013 by steven rosen
