Is This the Right Book for Me?

Should I get this Croatia & Slovenia book or Rick's bigger Central Europe guidebook?

If you'll be spending substantial time in Croatia and/or going off the beaten path in Slovenia, you'll want to have Rick Steves Croatia & Slovenia along. Rick Steves Central Europe includes full coverage of the main destinations in Slovenia, but only short overviews of the highlights of Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
