As the other reviewer stated, this would be a great guide for first time travelers to Europe. I am not convinced on the "budget" aspect though aside from suggesting campgrounds and lower-priced hotels, especially since about every page had a "splurge" item. But if you're considering a number of places, this is a great book just to try and compare everywhere at once.
This is a generally useful guidebook, but it suffers from two principle flaws:
1. Not enough price information. A "budget" guidebook should not list train and bus options between towns without giving their price. It makes planning very difficult. While they give some price info for accommodation and restaurants, it was not as specific as it could be. Publishers: don't list a single good, service or experience in a budget guidebook without listing the cost!
2. Too broad. Since it attempts to cover

My faithful guide has not yet let me down!!! Sure, it's not heavey on background or details, but it has all the countries you'll want to see and all the important tourist spots in (at least) the capital cities. It's been very accurate on prices and transport (for 2009) and although this can't be the only guide you'll use for a long trip, it's great for weekends or short stopovers.

huge travel book
first impression that it is of no use .. to much information in one place, so the content cant be that organized and complete.
And yes it's not.
Seams to be the worst possible travel guide ever, you can buy it just to have an overview of the country where you wanna go, then buy a specific/per country travel guide
but i don't recommend it.
If you want a general overview of the sights to see, or some lodging idea it is a good book. Otherwise, it's not worth the money. It does not give specific details, so you can't rely on it.
I liked that they had a lot of details from local people and they included main attractions as well as things off the "beaten" path that would be less money and less crowded.
do yourself a a favor, and don't be a cheapskate and try to save money by buying a general guidebook when you need one that provides more than 6 pages on major cities.
Have to see how useful this will be while I'm travelling. Not a lot of details on some places, but a good overview.
