Guidebook: Arther Frommer's Europe

Does anyone own the new edition (Nov. 2015) of Arthur Frommer's Europe? If so, can you list the countries featured in it? The product info available online is very generic, and refers to its contents as "the ten major western European countries to which Americans travel," without actually saying what those countries are. I'd like to know what countries are featured in the book before buying it. Thank you!

Never mind—I was able to download a sample to my Kindle, which includes the table of contents. If anyone's curious, here's the list:

England/Scotland
France
Belgium
The Netherlands
Scandinavia
Germany
Austria
Switzerland
Italy
Spain

Only Frommers thinks Scandinavia is a country. probably where the trucks come from.

Ireland is part of Scandinavia.

If the OP was truly a member of Fodor's he would have had a fight with himself and threaten to leave the board.

Ha ha, it was dumb of me to post the question without thinking of downloading a sample to my Kindle, but I am smart enough to seek out travel advice from multiple sources, not a single brand (though Fodor's has the best online community forum, hands down). Cheers!

(and yes to the point about the "country" of Scandinavia, I got a chuckle from that one too)

well England/Scotland isn't one country, either, but I guess they couldn't think of a short term as a replacement that was better. Or they could have billed it as 13-14 countries.

I like Frommer guidebooks quite a bit.
