Format: Paperback
Like another reviewer here at first glance I was disappointed after spending $35 on this...the printing looks second rate and the half-tone pictures are barely on the good side of awful...BUT...after looking through this quite a bit, it is very evident that a lot of time and research was put into it, and I think it's quite a nice book.

One glaring drawback is the lack of any kind of episode index or episode table of contents. I was looking for "The Pickle Story" and had to thumb through the entire book to find it. Hard to believe the authors would spend hours on the smallest details and not spend a little time to make a basic episode index. Took 1 star off for that.

Also, I do wish the episode guide had them in the order aired and not produced. Makes watching the DVDs and trying to find an episode a mess (further justifies 4 stars instead of five). But I do recommend it if you want detail. It has lots of detail and is very complete (except no episode index---argghhh!)

Includes info on rare pilot and the pilot for Mayberry RFD where Andy gets married and Barney is his best man.

Bought this for my husband who can't get enough of The Andy Griffith Show. He watches it every day and he never gets tired of watching the same episodes over and over again. He has the entire DVD collection, and several books. Now he is happy to add this book to his collection as well. It is packed with a lot of information so he should learn even more stuff he didn't know before. Like someone else mentioned, the photos inside the book aren't the best quality, but my husband is more interested in the trivia and that sort of thing anyway.

This book is a great starting point for any fan of The Andy Griffith Show. There is no single book that puts together everything that a fan would want, but this one is a must have. Coupled with other books that Amazon recommends on The Andy Griffith Show, Robinson's book is an excellent addtion to a collection.
