2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, bad information, 15 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto V Limited Edition Strategy Guide (Bradygames Strategy Guides) (Hardcover)
I'm not entirely sure how this product has gotten such good reviews here. My experience with this book was more or less a disappointment. Start with the printing quality, which for such an expensive book is appalling. Half of the pages in my book have now become smudged and many of the words have become illegible. My main problem with it, however, is that I highly doubt the writers actually played much of the game they're pretending to know so much about. It seems that, instead, they more or less took Rockstar's word on how things SHOULD work, and then assumed that it's all working fine. So, for example, the book will happily tell you that the "weed farm" random encounter is available to all three characters, and that it respawns once every week, whereas in fact this plainly not the case in the game. Many more such examples available. It gets to the point that you might find yourself wondering whether the authors have actually got the same game as you, or maybe whether they had access to some kind of special pre-release version where everything seemed to work just as it should.

Not to mention, it tells you nothing of some of the most important things to know about the game, such as how to profit from the stock market, how GTA Online works, etc. In fact, its only real value is in providing you with maps for certain things such as weapons, armor, collectibles, etc. However, since those will soon be available for free (probably in much better quality) across many different sites on the Internet, then the book will be entirely redundant.

So I would recommend you don't bother with this guide. Poor quality printing and plenty of factual errors and omission of important things make this a pretty bad product all in all.
