Great for Insight, OK for Travel Mar 20, 2007
This book is something you'd want to read before going to Sweden, rather than lugging it along with you. However, it did have the best map of Stockholm in it of all of our travel books. You can usually pick up a decent map for free, though, when you get there in the back of the booklet that comes with a Stockholm Card.
The information in the book is great for getting more familiar with Sweden and Swedes, but not being a native-born Swede, I can vouch for its accuracy. It seemed pretty good to me, though.
Insight Guide is usu great, this one is almost great! Jun 21, 2001
This book is great for a good overview of the entire country--the history, the people, the food, the main attractions. It explains about the different parts of the country. Some of the pictures are just sterotypical Sweden--Sweden is much more diverse then people realize. They have immigrants from many countries. Scandinavia is a beautiful place. The museum details are not up to date, but this is hard because they change often and can be closed for various reasons. Be sure to do research before you go there if you have specific places you want to see. Otherwise just head over and wander the streets and you will find great stuff. This is more of a book to read before you go rather then to carry around with you while you are there. The Iceland Insight Guide is great. As a side note: I lived in Stockholm, Sweden for one year working. I visited all of the Scandinavian countries and Finland while I was there.
