I think from the title you could gather two things. One, that I'm a fan of the series and horray another piece of merch. Or Two: This bookw as just that damn good. It was both.

This book is for the DIE hard fans I can tell you now because of all the behind the scenes info and GEORGIOUS pictures. And included are insider references, and a guide of episodes/characters/actors and goes all the way up to season 7 (we at the time of this review are airing Season 8).

It is an expensive and LARGE book. hard cover with a jacket. When removing the beautiful cover jacket, you can see a simple yet fitting old fashioned bound book facade of the actual cover in a brownish color. You will need to make room on a tall shelf to accomidate it, unless you intend to put it on the coffee table.
The book is like all of the companion books in that it gives you details about the show as well as the true insider knowledge. It is just detailed and very well put together.

A VERY VERY special bonus is that there are things in there for the reader to take out. Such as these little "postcard" type photos of the cast. However, they are SO glued in that even though they are intended to come out, DON'T. I've already ripped on of the pictures in the book and dented the card. It is better to just carefully lift them up to see what is underneath rather than try to take them out. Then there are the easily recognized insider jokes carried out in things like a religious air freshner in a tiny bag for us in the Impala chapter, a folder of book cover posters that CAN be taken out and hung up from Carver "Chuck" Elund, and at the VERY back, a poster of the road map of Sam and Dean.

This is an excellent book for any Supernatural fan. I ordered this expecting a basic coffee table book with a few obligatory blurbs praising everyone involved with the show and some pretty pictures. You get that the blurbs and yes, the pretty pictures, too, but you get much more than that as well! Included throughout the book are little 'extras' that were a pleasant surprise--a mini car air freshener, two sheets of sticker decals featuring symbols and logos featured on the show (like for Plucky Pennywhistle's!), several mini-posters of the Carver Edlund book covers as seen in Season 5, a map with places the boys have been--and more. The book itself is large, too, so you're not peering at the pictures trying to make anything out. Overall I was very pleasantly surprised with the book and look forward to paging through and discovering each and every hidden goodie inside.

I don't want to re-hash what many others have written here, but this book is amazing. I'm a professional bookbinder (fineblankbooks.com) and I make entirely handmade books custom-made to my customers specifications, so it's kinda hard to impress me with a mass-produced book. This one completely impressed me; both as a beautiful book/object and as someone with a probably slightly over-the-top love for this show. I've watched this show since episode 1 and feel I pretty much know it inside and out and this book has so much great info. in it! It's NOT just a book full of beautiful photos of Jared & Jensen (though it has plenty of those too). My favorite parts are the sections that deal with the behind-the scenes stuff and I especially can't wait to read the section about what goes into the creation of the hotel room sets (I've always been a bit fascinated with how they came up with the distinctive look to the hotel rooms which is definitely unique to this show).

You've already read (in the other reviews here) about all the stuff that comes with the book that you can pull out. That's all very cool (though when I received the book, the envelope of posters of the Chuck Shurley book covers had already pulled off the page in transit and taken some of the image with it...luckily, I can do book repair! But it's bad for a book - bad for the binding - to have something that thick shoved into it and I'll probably re-attach the envelope to the page, but leave the folded posters out of it when it's stored; just keep them near it instead of in it).

From a bookbinder's perspective, this book is actually SEWN together (in folded sections called "signatures") which is a rarity anymore (often, even large coffee-table books that are mass-produced are glued together instead of sewn).

I just got this book today and was totally blown away as soon as I opened it. It's very interesting and entertaining. Lots of beautiful color photos and very informative seasonal chapters loaded with removable surprises(personally I'm keeping the book intact). Any Supernatural fan is going to really enjoy adding this to their collection. I know I am. A very well done book!

The price was a little steep on the publisher's website, but Amazon had the price adjusted really nicely, so I didn't feel as guilty. I'm a sucker for books like this, and I'm a huge Supernatural fan, so it was a must-own! The little pull outs are really awesome, and the photos are gorgeous. Just a really great book.
