This book is simple yet fantastic. It has loads of facts, quotes and nitpicks without being predictable or samey. There are also interesting tables showing number of people dying per episode and so on. The layout gives the book an extra dimension too, being not too cramped and distinctive. This is only for the first couple of series, but any real fan should get it anyway. And if you're not yet an X-Files convert, you will be after reading this.
