Otherwise, it is very good and it even has, for some inexplicable reason, a section about Salzburg, which is in Austria!
I lived in Germany for 3 years and know it pretty well. 50% of places that are worth visiting for their cultural and historical value are described in this book as "not worth your time". One of these places is Heidelberg.
I don't know what IS worth anybody's time if Heidelberg isn't.
I don't think the author did much research on this town (and this is indicative of the rest of the book).
He describes it as a town that "attracts hoards of American tourists" - it is true that there are many Americans there but this is largely due to a US base stationed in the town.
If you want to take "back roads" and boast that you avoided all the tourists - this is the book for you. With the tourists, however, you will be avoiding some of the most beautiful sights in Germany.
