I think this was worth the price - certainly beats going to all the FAQ websites to find what you need about San Andreas. The mission walkthroughs are just that and don't offer much in the way of hints for those frustrating *cough* supply lines *cough* missions. The book is really good for side missions and hidden stuff which is what I really wanted it for. I would have to agree with thecrimsonshortone about the San Fierro photo ops - the map and thumbnails don't match whatsoever, not even close. Plus some of them are wrong. One of them states take a pic of the save the whales mural. But in the game, the brick wall is blank, its the Hashbury festival sign you have to capture instead. It's nowhere near as bad for the Horseshoe locations in Las Venturas - but some of the screenshots include stuff like stairs and bushes that must have been removed from the final version of the game to stop the PS2 from having an emotion engine overload.
Overall, it's a worthy purchase, but you will still need the odd trip to gamefaqs.com
