The Rough Guide is a great addition to Lonely Plant Viet Nam. The maps are much better and clearer. The history and back group of various places is well done and well written. It contains different information for eating and some different places to stay, however not as many or as good as Lonely Planet. A great addition to this is the Rough Guide for Vietnamese. It is easier to use than Lonely Planet because it puts how to pronounce the word. It is in dictionary style which I find more helpful in the moment than trying to find the subject area and then looking for the word you want.
