I like that this guide organizes tours of the various neighborhoods and sights so that you can plan in advance what you're going to see in a given day without feeling like you're hopscotching over the city. It also identifies the "don't miss" and the "try to see" sights in the context of other interesting but less iconic sights. Steves offers guidance on protocol, including tipping, what to eat, and where to stay.
I was torn between this guide and the Lonely Planet one. I chose this one only because I listen to Steves on NPR; however, you might want to get both if you don't mind spending the money.

It is easy to read with a few predetermined walks around the main touristic areas of Prague (Old town, Wenceslas square, Castle district, etc). You can do it at your own rythm and easy to follow. We liked it because it made us find stuff we'd easily miss instead and understand what is really going on.
Better than hiring a local guide in my opinion because you can do everything at your own rythm, stop and shop a bit, have a snack and drink and resume the visit a bit later.
Includes practical folding map with all the major attractions listed, metro/tram stations and zoom on various popular areas.
I would have liked a bit more stuff about the other Prague neighborhoods; this is centered mostly around Prague main tourist spots in the Old town. You can see mostly everything that is in the book in 3-4 days if you want.
