Recommends it for: people traveling to Norway
This book had a great description of the geography, history, people and culture. It has a ton of pictures which I like. It describes major sites but it does not list specifics like opening hours and prices. Nor does it have much in the way of hotel and restaurants.

It is a good book to begin research on a trip to Norway. It gives a good background on the country and then it would help you to decide where to go. Then you would want another guidebook for planning the details.

Easy-to-read introduction to the country, with essays on history, culture, and important features of Norway. Not really a practical travel guide as such but more of an overview á la National Geographic. Lots of photos and maps. Good for the planning stage of my trip, but I left it at home when I actually went to Norway.

This book has lots of short chapters about the regions in Norway and what you can see and do there.
Some of the places could do with some more suggestions, but overall a decent and useful guide about Norway.

This book is very good for historical, cultural insight regarding places, but you will want another to complement it if you are planning a trip.
