This book looks like EverQuest's bible at 504 pages!
It's all printed in light browny colour, with 'rune' bands on each page, the maps look like pencil drawings, very nice presentation.
The book is an entertaining read, rather than just giving you plain tables, it also has many little stories based on the locale of each city, which also contains hints, and are fun to read.
The introduction explains that the book is intended for 'newbie 'players, well.. sounds to me like a 'newbie' is any character less than level 20 in their mind. That is to say that unless you played this game for a year, or have a printer and spent hours printing all the maps and information you could find on the web, this book is a useful resource indeed.
The book begins with a Jargon glossary, most useful to newbies, then a lengthy description of all the character types you can choose, their skills, deities, and a list of most faction groups.
Then comes the 'Exploring Norrath' chapter, listing every major zone and city with a map, entertaining little stories, and table of the local NPC's (creatures and inhabitants).
While the maps comes from the website and the website contains much more maps, this is still a useful resource if you dont have a printer, and you want to consult the maps while you are in the game.
This is followed by a collection of the most common items, containers, armors, clothing, etc. all with AC and average price.
The next chapter is 'Creatures of Norrath', which gives stats for only those creatures that venture closest to the cities.
Next is a complete list of spells for each character class, up to level 24, that's over 400 spells, with mana cost, effect, etc. this is a useful reference even for seasoned players.

When i first bought this book i was amazed at the amount of detail inside. Now some 6 months on i am still refering to it to help me when i am stuck or unsure. The spells and research section are especially good and i am still using them as a level 23 necromancer. A great book that will never stop being used

This book seems to have been put together from a combination of Verant's own internal documentation, and helpful comments from users. Although it doesn't give any specific information on any individual quests (spoiler information), it can be useful to new players when deciding which character to play and how to configure it.
Seasoned players will find little of use in the majority of the book (except for perhaps the weapon guide), although, for "casters" the final definative and descriptive list of spells is very useful - and could be seriously worth buying the book for this alone.

Format: Paperback
A typical Prima guide. I rate it quite highly as compared to the documents and book supplied with the game it contains a wealth of info.
Very good for beginners that don't want to keep /tell-ing or asking a friend for help.

I... have found it to be invaluable for creating new characters. It gives a loads of useful hints without spoiling the adventure and can only add to your enjoyment of the game.
