Not surprisingly, this book has a lot to say about the food and wine of Portugal. But it also gives a good sense of place, the lay of the land, and the landscape and culture to expect. The charm of the country comes through. On the other hand, the authors are honest when a town isn't all that charming, and tell you not to expect much from it.
It should be noted that this book is physically bigger than a typical travel guide, and more for planning a trip than sticking in your pocket for instant reference. I've also spent more time with the Douro Valley section than with other parts of the book, but the whole book seems to have the same flavor and attention to details.
This book has given me what I was looking for.
