From the Author
Thank you for the positive feedback.
I'm heartened, as the editor of this book, that the reading public can appreciate a book with very small type but very large ambitions. The support on amazon.com and the site's many subscribers and users has helped push this book quickly into the stratosphere. It was a blast to put together, and the feedback has made it all worthwhile. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

You can now pick it up at such a cheap price, but what the book offers for me (and presumably many others) is a guide to The Simpsons in their prime, seasons one to eight, which I regard as the very best period for the show, and all of my favourite episodes are therefore covered. Whilst I still enjoyed the later stuff, I think the ideas were drying up slightly (and more so recently) and arguably most of the fan favourites and classic episodes came from those first eight seasons.
This original official guide looks fantastic, it's nicely laid out and colour coded to help the readers find what they are looking for (i.e: an episode synopsis and a colour to identify which eps were from which season). The highlight for me is the humourous brief biography of every character (including minor ones you may have forgotten) on every page. You have the complete work (up until publication) of Itchy & Scrathy (presented as a filmography) as well as all of Bart's chalkboard sayings, Krusty the Clown merchandise and much more besides.
Episodes are typically given one page (although some are featured over two) and you get all the vital stats, highlights, quotes, movie moments and 'The stuff you might have missed', which even an observant person like myself failed to notice. The guide is also introduced by show creator Matt Groening.
'A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family' is still a great companion book despite it's age, and is a must for fans. I had so much fun reading it, for days on end it became my bible.
