Format: Hardcover
This 240 page book goes over the basics of Sims 4, with sections headed: Simology (26 pages), Sim Living (44), Careers (20), Skills (28), World Tours (30), Architecture and Design (16), Object Catalog (58) and Appendices (13).

It is presented in a two-column format, which unfortunately means that the full-screen shots are sometimes of too small a size to see any of the detail.

It has fewer obvious mistakes that the Sims 3 manual (which was riddled with them), and so more care has been taken with the production. The text is of a readable size (unlike some of the Sims 3 expansion manuals), and there are not just one "Day in the Life of a Sim", but four of them.

However, I can't give this manual 5 stars. For me, I would have to answer the question: You need to buy this book because... If you are a veteran Sims 3 player, then you will be most interested in the "What's New?" section - but that is only 4 pages. There are also the Aspirations tables (4 pages) and the career tables (20 pages), so you can see at a glance which career is best for your sim, but I suspect that this information is readily available in the game itself (and on various websites, no doubt). The best thing about the World Tours are the maps showing the best fishing places, but with the removal of the work buildings, this is largely reduced to residential properties. There is, I fear, very few hints in this book which are a "Wow - I did not know that" (such as hint for buying a duck for the bath from Sims 3).

If you are not a veteran Sims 3 player, then this book does give you a comprehensive introduction to the Sims world, but I note the lack of things such as keyboard shortcuts or things to do outside of the house.

Overall, not a must buy, but good if you want everything Sims-related, or are new to the genre.

I was wanting so much more. What you pretty much get is the text you have in the game all put in one place. I was wanting insights that are not hinted at in game such as what books yield the most money. But this is very shallow and basic and has little info that is not already available. There are lots of great sims websites out there that do the job of a 'guide' better. And free.

Everything you need to know about Sims 4 (aside from now missing the new features that were added in after this book was made, such as ghosts, pools etc)
