    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to the full-size Rick Steves Scandinavia guidebook?

    Nope! Our Snapshot guides offer no additional information beyond what's in the larger guidebooks — they're simply excerpted chapters from our full-size guidebooks. Snapshot: Stockholm covers the exact same topics as the Stockholm and Stockholm's Archipelago chapters of Rick Steves Scandinavia — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything.
