Technically, this isn't a new book. It's an update and revision of two earlier books Robertson wrote about THE ROCKFORD FILES ... "This is Jim Rockford" and "The Rockford Files: A 20th Anniversary Tribute." I have both of those books, too (told you I was a geek) and, like improved software, it's well-worth "upgrading" to this new edition.
This is the story of "The Rockford Files". How it came about, how they picked the cast, and what went on behind the scenes. It also has synopses of every episode--including the return movies!--that lay out the basic premise of the episode without giving away any spoilers. The author (Ed Robertson) highlights a lot of the easter eggs buried in the episodes that most of us might not notice, as well as pointing out any prominent guest stars.
Lots of great pictures, too, that looked really good on my Kindle.
