"Lucy Mallows delivers a brilliantly informative, yet concise guide. I got the feeling she must have spent a lifetime exploring every town, valley and craggy peak of this magnificent country. Everything a traveler could possibly need to know is here; from which trains to catch to arrive at a chosen destination, to reviews on hotels, interesting things to check out, places to eat, even things to avoid. I especially enjoyed her own personal comments, which are sprinkled throughout the book. Thank you, Lucy!" --J. Kleinschmidt
"I've read your book from cover to cover - and love it!" --Richard Andolsen
"Good coverage, excellent maps, well informed." --Mr. S. Barton, London

Her fondness of Slovakia and its people comes through very well in her writing, and it was obvious she enjoyed traveling around and doing her research. Particularly the inclusion of subtle cultural observations and her 'pozor!' notes adds real human value to the book, making the reading not only more interesting but also useful for the day-to-day encounters. I am myself Slovak so was able to appreciate and recognise many of them.
There are a few typos (especially in translations from English to Slovak), which I'm sure would disappear in a follow-up edition.
I'd happily use this book again traveling around Slovakia, also around the parts I am more familiar with, as it adds a lot of value even to the native reader, through its humour, passion, and detailed observations both of the country and its people.
Absuletly I recommend it!
Must also say Slovakia have very good Information shops in most large towns and they have good local information and in English for summer and winter and OS maps.
As we were out side the normal toursit area of Bratislava it was more limited in our area but overall a good and useful book
