I think you should only get this book if you have not been watching the show since the start of it. A hard core fan would know all of the stuff that is in it. There are not alot of pictures and the pictures that are there are all in b/w.

It is a fun book! I have seen the excellent original La Femme Nikita and the pathetic US remade. I love the idea that the book drew a nice comparison between the production/directors/leading actresses of the two movies and TV series. It juxtaposed them with one another providing solid background on how did the whole thing get evolved from a French movie that marginally made it in the US box office to an amazing TV hit series. The episode guide was very precise and gave the reader a good idea of the narrative. More, The Idiot's Guide To Section One is HILARIOUS!! If you are a fan of the TV series, you will find it real handy to have this book when you are in the mood to do some reading about the series or Peta Wilson. One drawback is that there are very few pictures of Peta and they are in black and white. (Just a thought: if the episodes of the La Femme Nikita could be in released in tapes like X-File did, it would be great. Also, I think this series would be even a bigger success, if it could be run on the major network.)

As a big fan of the show I expected a lot more from the book. It offers very little about Peta Wilson herself other than a scant look at her life and career that was available in most magazine articles (the book is un-authorized). And the synopsis of the series is pretty basic. Half of the tome is taken up with a lot of silliness that is more for kids than adults.There are also very few pictures. It was great to find ANY book on my favorite TV show but I had hoped for a lot better than this....fun but generally to light for me.

After reading what was being said about the book on this page. I have went out to buy the book, but didn't after looking over the book. I haven't read any backstage gossip, nor anything about a realtionship between Peta and Matthew. Maybe there is another book with the backstage information as well as the information about Peta and Matthew.
The book didn't have anything in it that I haven't read online. I was hoping that it was a book that really lets us get to know the characters behind the masks if you know what I mean. This book is for newcomers that haven't yet seen LFN. The fans that are now starting to see season 1.

This book is great for a guide that takes you 3/4 of the way through the second season, but any fan could have written it. The front cover is also pretty packaging... Inside doesn't look like much. There are few images, and few insights.

New fans to LFN will find a wealth of information to help them learn who the characters are and what their role is in Section One.
Old LFN fans won't find much new information here, but the book is a good compilation of information to have at your fingertips for quick and easy reference.
Many of the websites mentioned in the book are outdated and there are many excellent new ones which can be found on the internet.
As a devoted LFN fan, the book was a "must-have" for my collection.
