Let's Go Europe 2017: The Student Travel Guide Paperback – Student Edition, December 6, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Sadly, the students at Harvard have fallen far with this work. The information was frequently out of date. I asked the worker at one location in Salzburg when the last time the price was as indicated in Let's Go - it was so far back he couldn't remember. I found the same in Paris and Munich.
The write-up for Paris was particularly abominable. The description for the Louvre was 3 sentences of un-needed detail and two sentences of supposedly witty talk about the crowds - nothing about best ways to see it, history of the place, best times to go or how getting tickets online saves you hours in line. There were no day-trip entries for Paris - nothing about Versailles, Fontainebleau or Chartres - which is truly unbelievable and inadequate. Locations for metro stops, but not which lines to take to get there were given. Lastly - do we really need 12 pages on nightlife locations when the writing on sights is so poor?
Let's Go has fallen so far that I can't recommend it at all. I'm sad that I cannot return it given that I took it to Europe it's a little too beaten up to return. This book is a complete waste of your money. I compared this to other books (Lonely Planet, Frommers) and found them to be far superior. It's really sad given their storied beginnings.
Do not buy this book.
I never imagined this book would be as useful as it was. But, it was. There was no way I could have planned every detail to make my trip safe and successful. Things come up. Plans change. And, I had to adapt. There's nothing like being in a foreign country, where you don't speak the language, and internet is nowhere to be found, and you don't know if you'll find a safe place to sleep for the night. Or, arriving somewhere new and exciting, and wondering what things are actually worth doing and worth seeing.
This book isn't perfect. It's essential. I don't think any young, budget-minded traveller should go abroad without it.
