There is seemingly no order to the way things are outlined in the book.
Hell Monkey
If you play dragon age and want a guide to show you everything the game has to offer this one is a must.

Critics and Gamers are torn on what to think about the recently released Dragon Age 2, but if you are a fan like me, this guide will be incredibly helpful to you. Like the guides to Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age Awakening, it covers almost anything that you will need to know, including Missions, Companions, Items, Maps, Dialogue, Gameplay, Combat, Stratedgy, and yes, Romance. It covers how to get in good with your Companions, ergo what gifts to give them, and each of their quests. The maps are detailed, and the walkthroughs are spot on. If you are a fan of DA2, but you are a perfectionist or are stuck on an area, this guide is worth the very low price.

Let me start by saying that I do not buy guidebooks to help me finish games. I buy them for the artwork and the maps. I suck with ingame maps. The artwork is lovely, not as nice as the CE guidebook for Dragon Age: Origins, but still worlds better than most collector's editions.
I did accidentally see a spoiler once, which was my own fault. The way they broke out the quests was actually perfect for the way I use the guides. My only complaint is that the book could have used a more detailed index. I loved that the lists of what to get for your companions was relatively spoiler-free, and on pages that didn't give anything away. Also, the equipment lists were useful, especially for the unique sets.
As a guidebook, it served my purposes excellently. As an artbook, it is fairly high on the list, but is still beaten by the excesses of Square-Enix.

This is a well-written game guide that finally does what game guide have been promising for years: there are no spoilers!
To clarify, there are obviously spoilers, but before it discloses them, there is a warning. Some sections are so chockfull of spoilers, they just label the whole section. However, as I just recently completed my first playthrough, I did not see any unwanted spoilers when I just wanted to find a map or information on how to woo a particular companion.
In general, the guide does a great job of, well, guiding you through the game. There is an intriguing section on party building and a system of how to spend attribute points, if you're into the hard mechanics of RPGs. The artwork and asides at the back of the book are beautiful and interesting, expounding on various aspects of the world of Thedas.
Though I love this book, I couldn't give it a full 5 stars, due to the truncated Index. There were several things I wanted to look up and yet were not mentioned at all, forcing me to brave a sea of spoilers just to find a specific detail.

First off, I'd like to point out how well made this guide is. The paper and print quality is the best I've seen on any guide. But, that's where the greatness ends. Like someone had already mentioned, this guide, for the most part, is word-for-word identical to what you'll see in your in-game quest menu. If you're buying this to get an insight on character builds and dialog help, you are wasting your money. Also, the quests are split into different sections: main quests, secondary, companion, and the lesser. In theory this sounds like good organization, but in practice it makes it so I wish I had twenty fingers to bookmark all the pages I currently need to read. The older guides(DA:O, Awakening) moved with the flow of the game and had most the info needed condensed into linear chapters. Honestly, about 1/3 through DA:2 I stopped using the guide because the time wasted flipping from one entire chapter to another looking for helpful hints (of the same topic), was killing the overall progressive fun of the game. So, If I buy a guide and using it is harder than playing the game itself (hard/nightmare settings), it's rendered useless. That said, I still enjoy looking at it for its art, presentation, and build quality, which are great.

I don't buy many strategy guides and this is my first Piggyback guide. I found it to be very well written and organized. The authors were meticulous about protecting the reader from spoilers and providing as little or as much information as wanted. Avoiding spoilers is huge for me so I appreciated this.

The quality of the book is excellent and would look great in a bookcase. The embossed cover design is a replica of the tome that belongs to one of the supporting characters in the game and the pages are a heavy glossy stock. The contents feature a lot of concept artwork throughout and even has a section dedicated to more of it. Also, there are comments about the game from the game designers.

Overall, the guide offered a lot of useful information on combat, walkthroughs, quests, items, characters, and more. During my playthrough, I referred to it many times and would recommend it.

I own strategy manuals for several games and this one has been the easiest I have used. Information is organized logically and makes it excellent for a quick reference. It also provides in depth information for people like me who need to know more about the lore of DA. The author/s did an excellent job.

When you play a game there's always going to be a time when you have to exit and go looking for a hint on the net. By getting the official guide, you have everything to hand. Just pause the game, find your answer and game on! It contains maps, unique items and where to find them, character development tips and best of all, warns you of any spoilers. And when you are up against a particular foe that refuses to lie down and die, turn to the bestiary guide for a quick tip. The book has an index which not only means you find what you're after very quickly, you also don't stumble on stuff you didn't want to see. The only down side is that it's so comprehensive you might feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of advice!
