There seems to be some confusion regarding item prices.
At the start of each catalogue, in the box labled "Understanding the Sections" next to Values it says "The item's suggested retail value(in Bells). Items typically sell for 1/4 of this value at Re-Tail." So, to figure out the item's selling price, you should divide the Value by 4.
To be honest, they should've just added separate buying and selling prices as this is just bothersome.

This is a neat little guide that includes information on pretty much everything in the game, but some of the information provided lacks detail.
-It lists all the possible villagers along with their catchphrase, taste in clothes/coffee/etc., but it doesn't include their pictures or their personalities.
-It only lists two examples of counterfeit painting/sculpture. (But it includes pictures of the real things so you can compare before making the purchase in-game.)
-It mentions you can get pictures of the villagers, but doesn't actually include the pictures in the catalogue.
-It lists basic information about the tools/fishing/stores/etc., but doesn't really go in-depth. This guide doesn't even mention how many bells you need to spend to get TnT mart or Shampoodle. (It just says, 'spend lots of bells')
-There are no pictures of the different wetsuits, and they're not even in the catalogue.
-The holidays from other regions are listed in the calendar, but no information is given about them, which might make it difficult to participate if you're visiting a town from a game that is of different region.
-There are no pictures of the external house customization options.
-It lists Kapp'n as a frog, when he is so obviously a Kappa.

There are good things about this guide, though.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is Nintendo's newest edition into their Animal Crossing Franchise. Unlike some of the guides that have been released in the past for the Animal Crossing series, it would seem that this particular Prima guide has fallen flat, and to be honest I've never been more disappointed by a guide purchase in recent memory. That being said, the guide isn't a complete waste of your money, but if you're expecting it to contain all of the information that you would expect a guide for Animal Crossing to include, you will be disappointed.

Pros:

- If you have never played the franchise before, the early parts of the guide will make your re-adjustment to the Animal Crossing gameplay and lifestyle MUCH easier. They will detail all of the tricks of the trade with the various tools you are given to earn bells with and how to eventually get upgraded versions of those tools.

- The guide includes a month-by-month calendar of what wildlife is available, so this ensures that you always can progress with your fish and bug collection without having to resort to 'time-traveling'.

- The guide includes a complete catalog of items in the game with checkboxes so you and the other players in the house can mark your progress. (Ex: Checkboxes are labeled P1, P2, P3, P4 for the 4 villagers allowed in one town.)

- You will learn tips such as being able to figure out which paintings are 'false' when the fox, Redd, comes to your town.

- I'm indifferent about this, but an e-version of the guide is available. It's not formatted very well for the e-format, but if you are unable to use the book you will have it available online.

I don't buy a lot of guides since game information is so accessible online, but I was extremely hyped up about this game and I wanted an item catalogue to carry around. Flipping through a book just has a better feel to it than looking things up online. I will admit that the prices listed beside the items made me unhappy. I felt that seeing the price that an item would sell for at a shop directly would have been more useful than the "value" that the book lists, which I believe is the purchase value that you would pay for an object... since I've been very unsuccessful selling items at Re-tail to neighbors at the listed price. I'm still experimenting to find out whether I can ever get the guide-listed value by putting my items up, though, so my opinion is still vague on that front. I also was disappointed that Neighbor photos and personality types aren't in the book. I was very excited to see all of the neighbor pictures and be able to see them before their houses finish building, but it is a travel-sized book, I guess. They didn't provide examples of Redd's counterfeits, they didn't provide photos of the projects that you can build or house upgrades, either. My biggest disappointment was that they were vague about how to unlock shops. "Spend a lot of money"? That's wasted space. It's obvious that you have to spend money to unlock things, but when I refer to a strategy guide, I want to know the days and the specific amount. I want to build my strategy, see?

Those disappointments aside, I love this book. It's small, so I can carry it in my bag easily. It's got beautiful full-color pages that are laid out in a pleasing and simple way so that it's easy to find the information that you want.
