The book is not all bad. It's just not very clear what the "Tardis Handbook" is supposed to focus on. We don't get to the actual history of the real police boxes(that the Tardis is based on)until page 22, and only on pg.24-27 do we get a (very) detailed and illustrated comparison chart of how the Tardis changed appearances from the First up to the Eleventh Doctor's era.
We get entries on the Doctor's regenerations, we learn about the Time War(no new revelations here, fellow DW fanatics), and lots of other things. Some parts of the book I really enjoyed reading, like the sections on the various parts of the Tardis and the several pages worth of definitions of the Doctor's technobabble terminology(you'll love this if you ever wanted to know about things like the Dimensional Control Unit or the Gravity Tractor Beam, for example). Others, like the various 'Journey Logs'(really just episode guide summaries of the most recent Eleventh Doctor episodes), and the info on the 'redesigned' Daleks, not so much.
Ultimately this is as much fun for the classic series fan as for the newer fans of the show. worth the price, but it does leave you wishing for about 75 more pages of info.
I'll use it when I don't have internet access but when I do the TARDIS Technical Index at [...] will still be my first and (given its greater breadth of info) last stop.
