Pros: The pictures are pretty! Great book if you are indeed new to the game. Got it cheaper here then what the suggested price.

Cons: For players that have played and raided this book is a HUGE let down. The spell rotations they give you in many of the classes to help you solo will easily get you killed and leave you frustrated. The book goes into every zone with a high level of detail and the wording that was fed to them from Blizzard. The down side to this is it reads as a ad to get people to start playing WoW and not so much to help them keep playing WoW. I purchased this book so I could have an idea of what to expect out of the first few dungeons so that I could get ready for the 7th without any problems. The section for Dungeons and raids just told you that there were indeed dungeons and raids new to Cataclysm but absolutely no details of what to expect. The book has a few spaces where the information it gives is not accurate (This is not Bradygames fault as Blizzard made the changes recently after the printing process began.)

I will not ever buy another game guide again. Huge let down!

Lets be honest. this guide is made for "new players" there is a "new players section" but it seems the ENTIRE guide was made for new players

it has VERY little information on the new zones and new quests and new gear for level 80+ 85....

for those of you who are level 80+ getting the expansion DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! unless you just want everything Wow....for me it was kind of worth it.. as chances are im going to use more of the wikis and websites and addon guides rather then getting this guide

sadly a lot of people will be getting this not knowing that there is pretty much ZERO infomation for level 80+ players

oh well. i guess its a nice basic guide...

and not back for just 17 bucks but....not the best in the world. your better off with wiki sites and in game ui addon quest tracker guides ....

This book is really intended for newbies or returning wow peeps, but that being said, I found some info on classes I haven't played that seems to be pretty good. It also gives tips on the stats you should beef up for different specs of the classes too.

There's also a small section that breaks up the continents into level brackets, which is very helpful to me since I don't have to alt-tab a bunch because I can't remember if I was high enough to start in a certain zone or not.

For the proper rotations though, you're better to google them since there were so many changes in the recent patches before Cataclysm's release. Also, there are add-ons you can download that can help out a lot too.

I do feel jipped about the dungeon section. I was expecting at least a general walkthough on the new instances & raids, but all it gives out is a list.

So, if you're new to the game or don't have a lot of knowledge about the different classes, get this book. This is coming from a person that only has one protection/retribution pally that was max level before Cataclysm & a crap load of lowbie alts.

It's true that there isn't much in the book for 80's,but the ton of info for newer players makes up for it.
We were all noobs at one point,and I think this book would be pretty helpful for people getting their feet wet with Wow.
I like the look of these guides,and that's one reason I got it.
My advice regarding this book is simple:
If you like collecting everything WoW,then this guide is for you.
If you are brand-new to the game,this is for you.
If you are a seasoned player,with multiple 80's,then this isn't what you need.However,there are many new facets that came when Cata was released,and I am finding the info quite helpful/interesting.I started two baby Worgen toons,and one baby Goblin toon.I found the info in the guide helped me with certain decisions.
If you are a seasoned player with several lower-level toons,this guide will help you learn about the new skills/races that Cata brought to the game.
If you like looking at nice artwork,then this is for you.
I'm glad I got it even though there are a gazillion web sites that can help you in your pursuit of Deathwing.But holding the book in my hand "feels" much more substantial.
And please remember,those of you who have pooh-poohed this guide as unnecessary,it is helpful no matter what level you are.Since Cata was released,I see quite a few questions from newer players in trade chat.If they had this book,it might help them not ask a lot of questions and get shot down by seasoned players,a lot of whom were apparently born playing the game and they know everything.Baloney.It is nice to have a preview of certain raids and dungeon runs.

When reading the guide it points out clearly what its goals are. If you were standing in a store you would know this before buying but when purchasing online this aspect is reasonably overlooked.

The amount of information for new players excels and borders on overwhelming. Every race and class is gone over thoroughly. The level 1-5 quests have quite a bit of detail listed (too much IMO). The interface and basic system for playing is gone over in detail as well.

The guide is also great as a review for returning players. Folks who chew through content for a few months after an expansion only to return when the next expansion comes out; you will find this to be a quick way to catch up on things without spending hours sifting through websites.

For level 80+ folks who have been playing continually up to this expansion there is not a lot of information in the guide for you. It talks about the new races and level layout of the land. The new zones have a very basic overview but the guide only gives you enough for a taste; it is not a walk-through-crutch. Out of nearly 500 pages; maybe 10% will help the average level 80+ player. Unless that level 80+ person has been doing nothing but nonstop raiding and missed all the other content the game has to offer, they will find more worth in the guide.
