Having bought Skyrim on PC at it's release 11/11/11, and having chalked up almost 800 hours in game, as you'd expect iv'e seen a lot of what the game has to offer. But i wanted to ensure that no detail had passed me by, hence my investment into this mighty tome.

PRO(S):
-1117 pages of everything you'll ever want to know about Skyrim & it's DLC, from details on every quest, guild member, enemies to skills & perks etc...
-Pull out map charting all key locations.
-Detailed colored pictures & easy to read text on nice quality paper.

CON(S):
-It weighs a lot, that only a true Dragonborn may lift it (not much hope of relaxing with this on your own throne ;-P).

In conclusion, i'm very happy with the book, despite my own extensive in game experience it has still managed to teach me a thing or two, helping me find new locations, quests & tips on fighting styles etc... It's simply just a pleasure to read in the comfort of your own home. Highly recommended.

I got Skyrim Legendary Edition for Christmas recently and decided to get the guide as it was very cheap for such a big book. I've had guides for computer games before (Final Fantasy VII springs to mind) but nothing anywhere near as comprehensive as this. This is truly a labour of love, pretty much every single thing in the game is covered... it must have amounted to 1000's of hours of gameplay and a lot of work for the small team that wrote it.

Plus points:
- Organised into clear sections covering races and abilities, weapons, armour, magic, all the quests, and maps of all the dungeons and major outdoor locations.
- Folding map of Skyrim and Solstheim with every location marked.
- Index of quests by name (very handy) and main index for everything else.
- Mentions other quests or important tidbits during each quest - e.g. don't kill this guy if you want to come back on X quest and find his sword etc. (again super helpful)
- Covers the Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLCs comprehensively
Dawnguard quests and locations covered
Large section on building your own house with the Hearthfire add-on
Maps of Solstheim and related locations and all Dragonborn quests detailed

Minus points:
- This is a massive book - about the size of a telephone directory - and as it is paperback, and printed on flimsy telephone directory style paper, you can't really balance it on you and read it at your leisure. It works much better if you've got it on a flat surface and are just flicking through to check the occasional thing.
- There are spelling mistakes but to be honest in a 1100+ page guide that can be forgiven!

In short, you need this in your life. Even if you're the sort of person who wants to experience the game with no spoilers there are times when you will get lost or frustrated and without this book you'd have to resort to internet forums or give up!

Format: Paperback
I bought this as a reference guide for Skyrim, there are some good online resources and "apps" available, however there are times you just want a good book that has everything you might need in one place.

The book is meaty to say the least with a page count of 1120 it's a got a bit of weight to it, not unexpected considering the vast content included. Paper quality is "OK" it's thin but has a coating and with care should be fine for normal use. I'd imagine thick paper would double the size of the already large book, not to mention add cost.

This isn't a book you can just dive into you do really need to use the contents to find what you are looking for though after a while you will have an idea where some sections are (ie weapons, spells etc) One area I might change is add some colour coding to the top of pages that might make it a bit easier to navigate. Included is a large pull out map double sided one side has the entire map of Skyrim and the primary/secondary locations listed, the reverse has Soil Cairn, Forgotten Vale, and Solstheim.

Tips and hints are included, this isn't just a "how to beat it guide" it tells you everything you could possibly want to know from the location of items, quests, characters, weapons, spells crafting level progression. Nothing is missing and just to help players there are specific references to PC/Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
