Format: Hardcover
A fully functioning diary, as with all preceding Discworld diaries of this manner, in exactly the format regular consumers of the Discworld Diaries should expect.

But, if a person unfamiliar with prior incarnations wants to know exactly what is contained (and is willing to accept the word of such a sycophantic fan of Discworld as I might be considered), then I would provide the following extended information:

Core contents are laid out as one week for each double page spread, four days to each side (final day of week being "Octeday", but not counted as a 'day of the month' so as to maintain consistency with our 'mundane' calendar that possesses only 7 days a week) with standard Roundworld event/phase of the moon/eclipse information unobtrusively mixed with humorous Discworld facts and artwork. A 2007 Year Planner can be found within the front cover for at-a-glance use and a 2008 Year Planner within the back cover for planning the year still to come.

Preceding the diary proper, there are 20-odd pages of text and artwork which convey (in typical Pratchettian/Kidbyesque manner) the 'facts' surrounding the past and present operations of the Ankh-Morpork Post Office itself, inclusive of a Personal Details section themed to the selfsame subject, much as prior years' diaries were themed and annotated towards their own assigned Discworld-related subjects.

In other words, as usable an A5-sized hardback diary as any you might find out there, with all the usual bells and whistles and an integrated 'bookmark-tassel'. And then you also have the added benefit of finely crafted humour and art upon the Discworld/Going Postal theme, running throughout.

I wasn't sure about this one, especially with it being so close on the heals of Going Postal, but being the obsessive Pratchett fan that I am I ordered it anyway.

I wasn't disappointed. As with the other Pratchett diaries it is full of wonderful titbits and illustrations. It is a great addition to Going Postal, adding extra details that were probably on Mr Pratchett's note pad when he wrote Going Postal the novel.

It's well worth the time (and money) of any Pratchett fan.

All this and a proper diary too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discworld Diary: Post Office Handbook 8 Mar. 2009
By draegonflye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For anyone not familiar with the Discworld Diary series, it is actually a diary... so most of the pages are blank, with tidbits of information about characters involved in the post office on each page, and a short history of the post office and its characters. If you're a huge discworld fan, you'll enjoy the extras, but if you're looking for a book to read, this is not what you want.
5.0 out of 5 stars Pratchett. Just Pratchett 23 April 2013
By Emi - Published on Amazon.com

I am definitely biased, because there is nothing that Pratchett wrote as the first author that I didn't like. But I have a special place in my heart for the yearbooks - they have those pearls hidden in them that you do not expect, and that you will laugh from for hours. Hard to get, but definitely worth it.
