The illustrations are one of the book's strongest points. The text did a good job of presenting the country's history , as well as contemporary life there.
As for the parts that were in English: this is a very different type of guidebook than I am used to. It lists the most common sites to visit in an area, and goes into great detail about what to see (photos, drawings, maps) for one or two important sites. However, there is almost no practical information, such as prices for admission. There are overall maps of the countries, and regional maps, but quite a few of the major roads on the maps in the guidebook did not correspond to the roads on a roadmap I had for each country (the roadmaps were more accurate). I got the impression the maps in the book were drawn to look pretty, not for accuracy. The printing looks nice, but the book is very heavy--not recommended for a backpacker or someone trying to pack light.
If it weren't for the pages in German, I would recommend this book for someone who wanted background information on sites to see in a country, but I would not recommend it as a guidebook to take along on a trip.
P.S. I ordered this book directly from Amazon. When I realized it was defective, it was after the standard 30-day return period, but Amazon was very helpful and gave me a full refund without any hassle.
