There are several problems with this guide.

1. In the vehicles section, there is a typesetting error that switches Brakes and Acceleration stats on some pages so you have no idea which is supposed to be correct.
2. Total lack of any information on how to make money (the biggest thing I got this strategy guide for). No section for stock market, no stock tips, no money making tips. This game is about money, and a good strategy guide would show you how to make money.
3. Very low detail of strategy. Most missions only have a few short sentences on what to do. Only covers the most basic details of each mission.
4. Does not attempt to provide any play tips. Some details like "Where is a good place to park the getaway car" are sorely needed and not provided.
5. General typos and spelling mistakes show this was a rushed job and not worth your money

EDIT: I have found even more misprints. This guide is full of them. It's incredibly frustrating to have to Google for the CORRECT information when I purchased an "OFFICIAL" guide. BradyGames is skimping on quality control massively here.

6. Collectibles are all over the place. Following in order will lose you hours of time. Bradygames asks YOU to do the work THEY are supposed to do, and determine a good order in which to collect all items, do all stunt jumps, etc. They put no time into calculating the fastest way to do everything. They just listed everything in the order they found them in. #5 will be in Paleto bay (farthest north), #6 will be in the airport (farthest south), then #7 will be in Paleto again, and so on.

Pros
-Looks great

-I love the hardcover

-Covers all the BASIC information about the game

Cons

-There's very little in depth information about the game.

-There's no mention of online at all.

-It only list the trophies/achievements on two-halfs of a page and then gives a small single sentence note on how to obtain them and nothing more. It simply tells you what you need to do but not how to do it.

-There's no real mention of the stock market or how to use it. There is a small mention of the stock market at the beginning of the Lester assassination missions but it says pretty much the same thing Lester says in game and talks about the construction company. No other missions within this section have any other tips as to what company's to invest in. There's is no other mention of the stock market anywhere else in this guide that i have found.

Thoughts

The guide just feels very lacking to me. I completed the entire story without even looking in the guide and I am only just now going through it and reading the walkthrough's as I replay the missions in order to achieve a gold medal. And for the most part the guide as been of no help what so ever. Occasionally ill come across a tip or something mentioned in the guide that will help me attain a higher score but those are few and far between.

The only section of this guide that is actually helpful is the miscellaneous section. This part of the guide shows the locations of the spaceship parts, letter scraps, stunt jumps, aerial challenges, submarine parts, hidden packages, etc most if not all are needed for 100% completion.

All in all, it is a decent strategy guide, but could be SO much better. but then again maybe I was just expecting too much from a $20 guide.

So the thing any reasonable non-five-star review will mention is there's practically nothing about how to make money in the game's stock market in this guide. I'm sure it's a reason a lot of people buy this guide to begin with. Obviously in the game, a character explicitly tells you how to manipulate the stock market before certain missions, but this requires you to take his advice in the cutscene and then cancel the mission before you can invest. It would be convenient to have a text to refer to (like, say, a *strategy* guide) before beginning a mission in the first place.

The vehicle guide lists the four stats for every game in the vehicle, which is awesome. But on several pages "Acceleration" and "Braking" are reversed. Anybody with a brain would be able to spot this and disregard it, but there are obviously people rating this who are very annoyed by it. In previous guide books (notably the San Andreas guide for Xbox/PS2) there have been descriptions of where to find or how to ascertain certain cars. That isn't really apparent here, aside from a mention of where certain rare cars can be purchased on the game's internet app. I'd consider this just enough to knock a star off my rating. It's kind of odd. Not to mention there are typos and other instances where descriptions, photos, and items on a map are jumbled. This can make finding certain things or triggering certain missions confusing. In a game where seeking out so many items and missions is so important, an official guide should be edited and proofread a lot better.

The actual layout of the book bothers me. It's just not intuitive to have certain maps printed so small or lists of items arranged alphabetically.
