What this book ISN'T: a way to read the comprehensive Teen Titans with a clear beginning\middle\end.
I finished reading this from cover to cover today, I really enjoyed it and if you like Johns' writing or DC's characters you will probably like it too. It's similar to his style with his Lantern teams except substitute magic instead of outer space (I prefer space though).
There are a LOT of characters in this book. I hadn't heard of most of them before other than Superboy (Conner Kent version), Robin (Tim Drake version), Speedy (Mia Dearden version) and Impulse (Bart Allen). The plots focused on them and Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark version) were my favorites. The stuff with the others was fine too but less meaningful to me. By the end of this massive book it is mostly all "B-level" side characters however, just FYI.
The biggest thing I think you should know is that it kinda counts on you being fairly familiar with the DC universe of that era. It would greatly help you as a reader if you were already knowledgeable on the prior teams (like the previous Teen Titans and Young Justice) and related teams (like the Outsiders or Doom Patrol). Additionally, this book covers so many years that it crosses many major events (such as Identity Crisis, Infinite Crisis, some OMAC stuff, some Amazon stuff, etc) and a primary character relies on you remembering the Death of Superman \ Reign of the Supermen comics from the '90s. If you haven't read those you may not know what is going on sometimes. You should be able to follow what the Titans are up to and why but you may be lost as to the big picture at points.
Keep in mind most of the Titans also exist in their own separate titles at the time or at least appear in their "family's" stories. Those issues impact them too and they carry that over to this comic, often without explanations. For me personally the most confusing aspects are when members will join the team and leave the team (or die and resurrect) yet one of the two events will be included while the other won't. I don't know if that's because it took place when someone else was writing or what but I just had to go with the flow.
Note for the editors: it really is over 1400 pages long but nearly every chapter has a blank black page separating it from the next so I really think they could've been used to throw in a couple lines of text explaining what is going on outside of the book to get the audience more up to speed.
Lastly, if you are not experienced with a hardcover comic this thick the middle section is quite tough to read in your lap. It's so heavy that you have to hold it open with effort and when the page gets towards the binding you have to work at reading it.
In conclusion if they had made a little more effort at turning it into a single long arc with lots of subplots then it would've been five stars from me. Instead it is just a stack of somewhat related chapters occasionally presented without context and that hurts it's readability as a cohesive epic. If I had known all of this beforehand I still would have ordered the book even though I've only read about half of the other works it depends on.
