Format: Paperback
This book is very comprehensive with a large amount of information. The information is easy to find with more than one indexing system. The quality of the paper and photos make it enjoyable to use. Highly recommend.

This book is an embarrassment. Virtually every page of book titles and listings has at least one glaring error. In the area of juvenile series books it is both incomplete, full of errors, etc. Examples are easy to find- Border Boys Series incorrectly dates the publishers, Bobbsey Twins description woefully incomplete, Battleship Boys lists only a few of the titles in the series and does not mention the first publisher which was Altemus, Airship Boys Series fails to note all of the books and both of the publishers. These mistakes are just on the pages I glanced at for series books. I suspect the same errors of commision and omission exist for many other books. Get yourself Mattson's guide for series books and do your own research for anything else. This book does have a nice glossy cover. Totally form over substance.

The name of the book implies a comprehensive list. For me, anyway, it's a strange mix and missing a lot. Somewhat entertaining, but not terribly useful.
