I just wrote a longish review of the Rough Guide: Norway, so I'll try to kept this short. I will write what I do about any guidebook - that I find Rick Steves and Rough Guides the only really worthwhile series worth looking at before, during and after you travel to a foreign land. Steves packs a lot into this guide, which includes a short-ish section on Tallin Estonia, as it is a short ferry ride from the Eastern-most Scandinavian country, Finland.

I focused on Norway, as I want to do the "Norway

I can remember the first Rick Steves guide book that I read - it was for a trip to Italy. It opened my eyes to a way of traveling - with a back door philosophy- that has framed my travels ever since. Any time I am traveling to a place he has reviewed, I use his recommendations along with the Lonely Planet guide. It is a killer combo!

Really helpful for prioritizing what to see among many countries depending on your trip length. Super helpful guides in optimizing time. found tips helpful more so than other R. Steves books. scandinavia felt overwhelming to plan without the book.

Purchased in preparation for our trip to Scandinavia - especially Norway. It was a good investment. Our trip was a guided tour with free time, so the book wasn't our essential guide, but it was, nevertheless, very helpful to keep us oriented.
