      Much as I cling to paper, our publisher (Avalon) is fearlessly navigating us into the new world of ebooks. Virtually all of my books are available as ebooks, except for Europe , European Christmas, and our phrase books. Twenty of my Snapshot Guides (excerpts of big guidebooks sold as smaller, cheaper, more portable and focused guidebooks) are sold only as ebooks, including Salzburg.   Rick Steves' Europe helps you make the most of your sightseeing. A fun but informative guide, this "professor in your pocket" features chronologically organized chapters,from the pyramids to Picasso,that explain the forces behind Europe's most important cultural and artistic periods/5().

      Since , Rick Steves has spent about four months a year exploring Europe. His mission: to empower Americans to have European trips that are fun, affordable, and culturally broadening. Rick produces a best-selling guidebook series, a public television series, and a public radio show, and organizes small-group tours that take o travelers to Europe annually/5(86). Do a Google search for Rick Steves pdf, and there’s one where you can download it on slideshare I have the book-actually a signed copy from a benefit auction. It’s more of a reference book. Are you planning to use his audio guides? Those would probably be more practical with your trip coming so soon.

      Anna, The Europe book is a basic intro to European art. It deals with art history and an explanation of the different styles/ages of art. Mona Winks is a book of self-guided tours of various European museums that may be somewhat out-of-date by now. I believe all of the tours in Mona Winks are included in the various RS Country & City guides. In fact, in January our cruise book logged in at number 12 on the national list of the top guidebooks. Currently, of the best-selling travel guidebooks in the US, the top titles are dominated by guidebooks to Disneyland and Hawaii–and by Rick Steves books.
