I have just spent a week touring Tuscany independently and took this little book along with me. It was quite useful and gives some interesting background and history but is not as detailed as some of the other small guidebooks available. It does describe the places that it mentions in reasonable detail but its scope is more limited. If you are thinking of buying it then do get it - it is a useful companion and a good read, but do not rely on it alone, make sure you have something else more detailed too.
