This is a really great guide book that takes you to some unexpected places like fortresses built inside mountains. I appreciate this author's idea of travelling like a temporary local. He's an American author and the book is pitched towards America travellers. Also has a great podcast and audio walking tours on his website

Another intimate introduction to several cities/areas in a foreign country. While I grow increasingly irritated at the author's selectivism, I do appreciate the personal nature of the writing, his tips on the little things, and I continue to agree with his "backdoor" philosophy of travel.

I recently visited Switzerland (Basel, Bern, Lauterbrunnen, Luzern and Zurich, and the only one he didn't cover was Basel. I recommend it to just about anyone who travels, but it's a less than ringing endorsemen

I like to make fun of Rick Steves (with his goofy backpacks and over emphasis on marijuana culture), but this is a pretty good guidebook. Lots of details about getting up the mountain peaks and walking tours of towns, pretty good maps, and a Kindle edition, so I can just keep it on there. It is not as expansive as other guidebooks in its coverage, but hits the major areas. My one complaint is that it's a summer-centric book (which he acknowledges in the book).

I didn't read this entire book because we didn't visit every town in Switzerland that he did, but we did read the parts that we visited quite thoroughly! If you are traveling to Europe, you NEED to read his books. He will give you down-to-earth advice and you can tell that he writes from personal experience...not just stating facts. Some of his tips were really life-savers!
