Not sure how, but I'm not complaining.. My book just got to my doorstep today, and after just now taking the packaging off to reveal the giant book, I must say: If this book is based purely on beautiful artwork, information savvy tips, and shear volume (448 pages!), it was worth every penny of the meager price Amazon charges for a book that retails for $21.99. I can't type a review yet, and I wouldn't dare to until I put the book to good use, but from the looks of it, I'm in for a treat of reading pleasure in Sanctuary.
**NOTE** Like all Brady Games guides distributed, this one mentions a digital guide for iPad owners, but not just a companion.. this one is more of a true digital "copy" of the book complete with interactive tutorial videos and such not available in book format. Personally, I love the feeling of a heavy tome in my hands, and I don't have an iPad yet, so the book suits me just fine. But for those out there that are considering purchasing the guide and have an iPad-- you may want to wait and purchase it in the iTunes store for $9.99, as advertised. Hope this helps!
