my folks were planning a trip to Sweden so I bought this guide for them. they found it full of good information and very easy to read.

I purchased this book years ago. I'm sure it's quite outdated by now.

Great book to check prior to going to Sweden. Lists what's important. Loved the part that showed 1, 2, or multiple day tour schedules

Frommer's Sweden has been very helpful for planning our trip to Sweden. It's helped us decide where to visit, and where to stay (and probably eat) in those cities. I looked through all the other available guides to Sweden in the bookstores and libraries, and this is one of the best. Too bad it's not more colorful inside.

This book was in new great condition and arrived in a very timely matter. The book is very informative for our travel plans.

I'm perplexed by the glowing reviews of this guide; I think the differences in opinion reveal different demographics and approaches to travel, but these are big issues that travel guides need to address and make clear. If your guide is best for wealthy middle-aged people, then come right out and say it. Label it or market it as such.

I knew this was not a good guide for me when, in Chapter 1 under "Best Travel Experiences" the #1 listed "experience" is "Shopping in the Kingdom of Crystal," going on to say that "many visitors come to Sweden just to shop for glass." You are kidding me, right?? Do I look like a high-society time traveler from the Victorian Age who goes around the world collecting crystal?? Of course I want *some* info on shopping, but to say that people go to Sweden to buy glass is ridiculous. It certainly does not fit my needs or interests as a 32-y.o. solo budget traveler. Speaking of budget, be warned that this guide does not cover hostels, includes too many splurges and posh spots, and turns a big nose up to public transportation for traveling between cities. I was really dismayed to read that all of the Suggested Itineraries for the country in Ch. 4 require car rental. At the very least the guide could have provided separate itineraries for those renting cars and those taking trains and buses.

The back cover of this book claims that the guide offers insider tips and exact prices and that, with this guide, you can "experience a place the way the locals do." None of this statements are true. For at least 2 of the museums in Stockholm, the book has listed the entry price as free. They are certainly not free, and I doubt they were free last year or the year before that. So poor research, poor fact-checking, and poor editing all around.

Other issues I had with this book:
-The maps are really, really crappy.
-The Gothenburg section makes absolutely no mention of the islands in the Archipelago.
-The section on Swedish words and phrases is hidden in the back, following a list of major hotel chains and their phone numbers (who needs this???), and consists of a measly 1/2 page. The list doesn't even include the word for please. Do you need to learn Swedish to get by in Sweden? No. But it's just common courtesy to learn some of the local language. This list is an insult.
-Too much space is devoted to detailing specific dishes at restaurants. I consider myself a foodie, but even I found the restaurant descriptions to be unnecessarily long.

This guide was clearly written by an outsider, not any type of insider or native. I don't think it provides an accurate picture of Sweden, and it does not suit the needs of a younger traveler or budget traveler. I realized before I left that it would not help me at all so I did not bring it with me on the trip. It's going in the trash now.

This book was invaluable for us in touring around Sweden. We stayed mostly on the back roads and traveled through small fising villages on the coast and inland areas in the SW part of Sweden. The book helped us decide day to day where to go and what to see. We were on a totally unstructured trip and used the book to decide each night where to go the next day.
