This review is from: Hoard of the Dragon Queen (D&D Adventure) (Hardcover)
I purchased mine through a local gaming store, and have only played through the first chapter. That chapter is presented as several missions, which your PCs can take on in whatever order you see fit. The book presents you with very clear guidelines to run each encounter, and still gives you plenty of wiggle room to accommodate improvising. My players found the story very intriguing so far, especially since the adventure provides very easy to implement adventure hooks for all your PCs. The adventure is designed to level up your PCs after each episode, so you can ignore calculating XP should you so choose.
The book itself is full color, thick pulpy paper, and the cover features great artwork, and a half glossy, half matte finish.
You get plenty of content to take the PCs all the way to level 7 for thirty bucks, and have the option to play using just a free PDF of the rules, instead of the buying the Core Rulebooks (this PDF is necessary until the whole set of rulebooks is released).
In my opinion, it is a great start to the new edition of D&D.

I'm pretty new to D&D. I got the PHB yesterday and was thinking of getting this. Does this come with maps, or pages with maps you could recreate to scale? Thanks.

The maps are available in the book at typically half and full page formats. You can also buy them directly from the artist at http://theredepic.bigcartel.com/category/
