The first 170 pages detail the ODST Campaign and it works very well. Each level is broken down into sections and you are given very good advice on completing the game on each of the game's difficulty levels. A run and gun technique might be offered for normal/easy; whereas a "use rocket launcher on this turret" would be offered on higher diffculties. The author recommends different weapon loadouts for each level and difficulty and it's comprehensive, if not essential to follow. I have my own favourites anyways (carbine as the battle rifle is sadly omitted).
Where the guide breaks down for me is with the audio diary collectables. There's a fascinating side story (detective story really) about a girl, Sadie and her efforts to flee New Mombasa during the Covenant invasion. Its really well told and there are achievements for collecting some or all of these Audio Diaries. You might think that buying the official guide would give you the locations of all 30 diaries, but, constant reader, you'd be wrong. Bungie, the game's developer are notorious about spoilers so you'll get vague reference to the diaries but not their locations. This is disappointing in my opinion for those who have invested in the guide, particularly as a map with each location is readily available from a Google search within hours of release.
So, all in all, this is an average guide. For collectors its probably essential. If you're struggling with the game, it will help you; but all in all I'm a bit disappointed with it.
