The book was concise and easy to follow for my trip to Belgium. I wasn't even planning on visiting Bruges, however, I did, so it came in really handy. The suggestions on places to eat were helpful, and the blurbs of historical sites and info on the chocolate shops were good as well. I was glad that I read the book and found out about the signature foods to have in Belgium. The food in Belgium is absolutely wonderful. Although the book suggests taking the train, Brussels is easily walkable. The maps look confusing, but once you're there, it all comes into place with the landmarks, depending on your map-reading ability.
