Is This the Right Book for Me?
If your trip will focus primarily on France, this single-language phrase book is your best value.
If you'll be traveling to Italian- or German-speaking areas as well, Rick Steves' French, Italian & German Phrase Book might be the better buy. It contains all the essentials of each single-language phrase book, but without a dictionary, and with fewer travel tips (and it's in two-color, not full color).
