Content: I like the history of the game; the reactionary newspaper articles that come every time there is a major change in the rules always include a little funny line about someone crying that the game isn't going to be the same again. You get the rules of the game, descriptions of the brooms and other equipment, different plays, one paragraph descriptions of the various teams and leagues. I always like a bit of backstory into the Wizarding World, but the book is short enough not to be tedious. I'm sure that people who LARP Quidditch will wear their texts out because you really do get solid Wiki description of how to play the game.
Edition: I got the 2001 edition pictured here. The 2001 Comic Relief editions of the Hogwarts Library books have proved to be my favorite (along with Tales of Beedle and especially with Fantastic Beasts because the commentary goes missing in the 2012 box set). I know there is a 2012 edition of this book that is in the Hogwarts Library box set, but I've heard (have not witnessed) that the content is relatively the same. I think the deal with the hardcover 2012 edition is the cover looks different, more like a textbook and uniform with the other books, but I like my 2001 mismatched editions just fine.

Throughout there are mentions of prominent Teams and Players throughout the world and how it spread throughout. A whole chapter being dedicated to the Quidditch teams of The UK and Ireland.
I love how Rowling does a great job making this world believable that it's actually real. I think all Harry Potter fans should at least read this once.
Anyways, I accepted. It came 2 weeks later the book, not in hardcover as I wanted. It took me 3 hours to read the book and it gave just a brief explanation of where and how quidditch appeared.
I’m a massive potter head and I would say there isn’t much to it, i’ve been collecting harry potter for 3 years and i’ve dedicated a whole room for it. It’s now sitting on a book display on my bookshelf with the rest of my collectibles. But i really did have to go through hell just to get a 150-190 page book that, not going to lie, is pretty boring. It’s just nice to display really.
