While geared for students, I would say it's not any less useful to us older folks. The book will always state that such and such cafe is a student hangout, young people congregate at this discotheque, etc. but other than notes such as that, it's really just a budget minded travel guide.
One note: this book is printed on very thin, newsprint style paper, and has very small font. If you're over the age of 40, you might need to put on your glasses :)
However, I wasn't surprised. This is a guidebook written by college students for college students. I can't be too critical of this book's focus because I am certainly not among the target audience.
I will say that, since Let's Go Europe is written by Harvard students, I feel kind of bad for the college kids without trust funds or a parent's credit card in hand who try to live the lifestyle expounded on in the book. I wouldn't recommend that kids take out thousands of dollars in student loans in order to finance a "Let's Go-Style European Vacation."
The book is written with the expectation that the reader is going on a months-long grand tour of Europe and can spend well over $100 a day all summer long, eating gelato and drinking local beer in picturesque European settings.
Also, one note about the logistics of using this book on the Kindle: although it is easy and convenient to skip around the content of this book with a Kindle, the maps are very, very difficult to read as are some of the icons used in the book. In addition, some of the content's formatting is lost on the Kindle which makes for confusion, especially when whole pages are rearranged and words are cut off the page.
