After 40+ years of writing about Europe, Rick Steves has gathered 100 of his favorite memories together into one inspiring collection: For the Love of Europe: My Favorite Places, People, and Stories. Join Rick as he's swept away by a fado singer in Lisbon, learns the dangers of falling in love with a gondolier in Venice, and savors a cheese course in the Loire Valley. Contemplate the mysteries of centuries-old stone circles in England, dangle from a cliff in the Swiss Alps, and hear a French farmer's defense of foie gras. With a brand-new, original introduction from Rick reflecting on his decades of travel, For the Love of Europe features 100 of the best stories published throughout his career. Covering his adventures through England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and more, these are stories only Rick Steves could tell. Wry, personal, and full of Rick's signature humor, For the Love of Europe is a fond and inspirational look at a lifetime of travel.

Interesting read. Having watched the shows helped with picturing what he was talking about. I like his take on Europe, exploring the history but also the current culture.

As a physical book, it is really well put together. Thick pages and full colour photos. Makes it almost heavy.

I've been waiting for the library to get this book, and from the snippets on Rick's blog, it should be a highly entertaining read. Now that the book is in, I'm #4 on the wait list, and drooling over what he's promised.
