We know Germany well, as we visit for business and pleasure several times a year, and so wanted a guide that provided a general overview, which would then allow us to research destinations of interest in greater detail. Germany presents a particular challenge in that it is such a huge place with so much to offer that it's very hard to condense that into a single guide, and it seems that the Rough Guide has done a good job of it.
So far, so good - it gives good coverage of places we already know, and provides what appears to be interesting information on places we're still planning to visit.
Just some advice if you are planning to get the most out of a trip to Germany: you're unlikely to be disappointed by the first division attractions, but in my opinion, its greatest charms are the smaller, less touristed towns (places like Naumburg, for example). I would therefore suggest that you use the country guide to decide on which parts of the country you'd like to visit, and once you've made your choice, supplement this with a regional guide (such as the Rough Guide Snapshot guides) which is more likely to highlight the more interesting off-the-beaten track attractions.
On the down side the book put our suitcase over the budget airlines hold weight limit and ended up in our hand luggage; did you realise that they don’t weigh hand luggage? It is large and quite heavy if you are trying to travel light and in hind sight I regretted not trying the kindle version, although I really like hardcopies of travel books because you can browse the book as well as read information. All in all this is a good reference book to help travel planning for a week or more but probably not the book to pack for a weekend visit.
