-Looks awesome, nice dark pages and shiny pictures.
-Lists wands for even minor characters.
-Dark backgrounds makes it look more professional, like the wands are sitting in a display case or something.
-Good quotes from the cast and crew about their wands and wand fighting.
-Cover is made of that soft rubbery stuff that is fun to touch.
-Does not include information on wand wood type and core. There is a "wand index" at the back that lists the length of the movie props, but no reference to lengths as described in the books.
-Wand images are grainy and not crystal clear like you'd expect from a high quality printer.
-Prose is mediocre. The worst was the beginning, which recapped Harry's experience at Ollivander's... from the film. Why they didn't just quote the text of the actual book (instead of summarizing the movie adaption of the book) is beyond me.
-One page was not printed properly, and had a wide blue line at the bottom.
-Not all wands are included--in particular, Harry and Hermione's wands from the first movie are missing.
-Some pages had little creases on them like they were going to rip.
-As others have mentioned, very little is written about the actual wands. Most of the text is summary about each character.
This book is a wonderful showcase of most of the wands created by the prop crew for the Harry Potter movies, and it's a super fun book for a Harry Potter fan. Just go into it knowing it's a prop book, not a canonical index of wands, and you won't be disappointed.
