After this abomination, I may never buy another strategy guide again. I was expecting some real insight from this book, but it didn't teach me anything in regards to how to play this game better. The only thing of any value is the listing of the races which tell you what new items you will unlock and when. Unfortunately, even this isn't as good as it could be, as it is flat out wrong in many cases. I don't know what to trust anymore. And lastly, early on, when listing the game options, they mention how you can turn "Car Damage" on and off. But this feature isn't in the game! My feeling is that they rushed to put this book out and used a VERY early version of the game. When the final version of the game was released, rather than updating their strategy guide, they just left it as is. Very unprofessional in my opinion, and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth for ALL strategy guides that will come after it. A total waste of money.
