I am a huge fan of Nolan's Batman films because they bring a sense of realism to the Batman mythology. This book is great because it allows you to take a closer look at all of the technology and gadgets within the films. The book provides plenty of photos and diagrams, along with informative text, that gives you a new appreciation for the amount of design that went into these movies.

The book covers the following topics: Batman's suit, the Tumbler and Batpod, "The Bat" flying vehicle, the Bat Cave, and Wayne Manor. There are also case files for The Joker and Dr. Crane, hospital records for Harvey Dent, many prototype designs from Wayne's applied sciences division, hand-written memos to Bruce Wayne from Alfred & Lucius Fox, Gotham Police decals, etc.

One of the unique aspects is that this book, much like the Harry Potter Film Wizardry, features inserts that can be removed from the book. Flipping through the book, it almost feels like you went to Gotham City and brought home a bunch of cool artifacts!

LIST OF REMOVABLE INSERTS:
- The Cave blueprints
- Bat Signal Stickers/Decals
- The Bat (flying vehicle) blueprints
- Gotham Police Dept. stickers
- Harvey Dent campaign stickers
- 8 Joker cards
- Map of Gotham City
- There is also a hidden disc behind the folder on the last page -- the disc includes 14 high-res images.

**Note that there are many other inserts included, but they are not designed to be removed from the book.

Overall, I can't say enough good things about this book. Batman fans will be satisfied, and it gives you a greater appreciation for the world that Nolan and his design team have created. If there is one criticism it's that the book is a bit light on "The Dark Knight Rises" material, although characters like Bane and Selina Kyle do get their own pages.

Like so many others out there, I am extremely hyped for the final chapter of Nolan's Batman saga. To help bide my time until the film's July 20th release, I decided to check Amazon to see what was out there. The Dark Knight Manual, seemed interesting enough... and really the only book out there. I decided to take a flyer on it. Two days later, (thanks Amazon Prime!) and boy am I glad I did.

I spent a good 2-3 hours just going through this book, page by page, artifact by artifact. You can really sense that this book was a labor of love by the people who made it. Never will you come as close to being an inhabitant of Gotham City as you are while reading this book. The book may seem small at 112 pages but there is so much detail that bleeds off every single page, with lots of cool easter eggs littered throughout.

My only negatives are that I wish the book had a few more profiles of key characters in the trilogy. And that some of the individual photos used are a little dark.

All in all, a really great book for the Nolan fan. It's definitely a coffee table book that will leave your guests with a smile on their face and one that you'll find yourself coming back time and time again.

The first time I saw this I had to have it and after going through and reading it, I bought a second copy so that the "usables" found within could be used /displayed......the map of Gotham is an awesome bonus.

This is a must for Bat fans everywhere. It's as if Bruce and Alfred kept a diary, and includes great comments and post-it notes from gadget-maker extraordinaire Lucius Fox. Photos of all the incredible vehicles, as well as the cool toys. This amazing tome covers the villains, including their demented backstories. It has maps of the Bat Cave, as well as the temporary quarters from TDK. There are extensive Gotham PD files and surveillance photos from when Thomas and Martha Wayne were gunned down by Joe Chill. Also includes color pictures and chapters on all of the rogues, from Scarecrow to the Joker to Bane. Five stars out of five. D-Kat sez "check it out."

Like a pop up book for your full grown geek. My boyfriend absolutely loved his birthday gift. It comes super packaged so nothing is missing.... had a disc in it, though I'm not sure if it was a cd, dvd, or dvd rom... It's full of decals, cards, photos, and mock up maps and case files... incredible. He loved it, I loved it, money well spent! (And nerdy girlfriend points when bought as a gift too!)

If you are a big fan of the Dark Knight movie series, this books is for you. Also, purchasing this book through Amazon is THE best way to go. I was at a
well known and popular bookstore (not saying who), this book was about fifteen dollars more. It has allot little papers and fold outs. I highly recommend this collectable.
