With a bewildering array of over 8,000 islands, endless meadows of wild flowers and the lively and cosmopolitan coastal city of Gothenburg, west Sweden perfectly encapsulates both the rugged beauty and urban delights Scandinavia has to offer. In the first guidebook dedicated to the area, Bradt's West Sweden reveals the staggering variety of the area's experiences, includes a section on the region's history and culture and offers detailed maps of both the coastline and the cities. Centrally located within Scandinavia, west Sweden is quickly developing as a vibrant tourist location, and in 2012 there were over 3.5 million guest nights in Gothenburg. The author, James Proctor, has written Bradt guides to Lapland and the Faroe Islands and has visited Scandinavia annually since 1986.

James first travelled to West Sweden in 1986 and was smitten with Scandi-mania from the very outset. He's been back and forth ever since and currently spends several months every year in Sweden. Specialising in the Nordic countries, he has written a total of six guidebooks, including one to the whole of Sweden as well as Bradt's Faroe Islands and Lapland guides. James speaks fluent Swedish which Swedes (and most other people) find quite baffling. Searching to understand why, they regularly ask whether he has a Swedish mother or father. Their incredulity only grows when they learn that he learnt Swedish by mistake -- attending the wrong lecture at university!
