Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Pocket Guide Barcelona?
It is NOT in Spanish- rest assured, it is in English. Dec 28, 2006
This book is a great ENGLISH guide book, so you can disregard the two previous reviewers comments. They were not commenting on the book itself, but reporting a problem in this site's system that has obviously been corrected. Reviews are meant for reviewing the product, not to report ISBN issues to this site which can be done another way....
Spanish version, *not* English Jun 2, 2000
Like a previous reviewer, I was dismayed to receive this book and find that it was in Spanish; the fact that it was the Spanish version was buried in the comments section & the title made no indication it was Spanish. Buyer beware!
This book is in Spanish!!! Apr 12, 1999
Nothing (well, only the "Guia Turistica" beneath the title) in the information given about this guidebook prepares you for a Spanish language guidebook. However, for only $7.16, I'm going to keep it - who knows, maybe I'll learn enough Spanish on my trip to be able to read it someday!
