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!

This is the most in-depth gamin guide I have seen for a long time with over 1,000 pages, i'm not going to stop reading this bad boy for a long time. The guide comes with an in-depth explanation for everything in the game from Mobs to quests to dungeon layouts and what secrets that can be unearthered if you take your time to find them. The book is not essential to beginners however i would have loved to have purchased this back in 2011 when Skyrim first came out for an in depth explanation into the Lore of Elder Scrolls and it's character and why certain elements of the game are how they are. This guide does come with the DLC's information and does contain many major spoilers which I advise for you not to read until you've played through the mission in that section before unless you're a trophy/ Achievement hunter then spoil yourself rotten as this Huge bible of a book to the Elder Scrolls will give you everything you need to access every single achievement.

This strategy guide has been expanded to incorporate the DLC included in the Legendary edition of the game and so acts as a complete guide to the world of Skyrim. The book opens with extensive sections on character creation. This is somewhat superfluous as the player's style will determine much of how their character develops but it does give useful ideas on which races may better suit an intended character type. There are then useful sections on the various crafting techniques used in the game - alchemy, smithing etc. These are essential to getting the most out of these skills. A comprehensive bestiary follows, and then we enter the world proper. The book details all main quests and side quests before detailing the locations of Skyrim and its surroundings. Inevitably this leads to some repetition but this is a strategy guide, not a novel, so this hardly matters. There is a wealth of information here and subtleties that might easily be missed whilst playing - I've played over 200 hours of the game and still found things in this guide to which I had been completely oblivious. A glossy, detachable map is included to aid location finding. Unfortunately, the index is not as extensive as it might be but this is still a very useful package

I took delivery this morning (June 20th 2013) and was really excited. I'd already purchased the first release shortly after Skyrim was released back in Nov 2011, but hadn't really used it (partly because you couldn't keep the book open at the pages you wanted to read hands free without breaking the spine of the book. The paper back edition felt really unweildy despite being almost half the size of this legendary edition. This hard back legendary edition, apart from feeling solid, can be opened at 'any' page and laid flat without damage to the spine, which I am really pleased about. It'll mean I can play the game, yet look at the book without having to hold the pages open at the places I want to read about.

It also includes a digital eGuide code, so if you're a collector you won't even need to open up the guide. (though to get at the code you will need to remove the cellophane wrapper. Also included is a reasonable panoramic image of Alduins wall and a large poster sized double sided map of Skyrim showing the location of everything you need to find.

The cover is well designed with a dark bluey slate like colored finish and an almost Celtic like design front and back, with the Skyrim emblem emblazoned over the front of the cover. (I'd loved to have seen a dust sheet made for this book). The dimensions are the usual size for a strategy guide apart from its thickness; i.e. approx 8.5 inch by 11 inch and almost 2 inches thick. As you can imagine, with 1117 pages (plus the back sheets), each page is ultra thin, but thick enough that you can't see through the pages. Every page is crammed full of information about the game with images and/or maps on virtually every page.
