I found some other interesting sights but they will have to wait as I am out of vacation days. Kudos to DK for knowing how to put a real travel guide together.
It has tons of wonderful color photos so that you can get an idea of what you would see at these places which certainly helps when deciding what is important for you to go see and what you can miss.
What I found this guide to be majorly lacking in is practical travel information. There is barely any information on places to stay. Hotels are listed in an entirely separate section from the city guides, and the hotels that they do list are primarily for people who are traveling with a rather significant budget. Same story with places to eat.
There is some practical travel information in the very back of the book, but it was very broad. My Lonely Planet guidebook doesn't have all the detail on museums and palaces that this book has, but it does have plenty of good travel tips and suggestions for each city and town that this Eyewitness guide is lacking
Are you interested in taking a day hike and seeing some of the countryside? You won't find any suggestions here. Are there deals to be had on tickets or passes in a city? They aren't listed in this book
I'm older now and no longer staying in group dorms at a hostel, so I don't begrudge this book for not catering to cheap travelers, but I do want more from a travel guide than "here's a picture and a history lesson"
