The sheer details in the book are astounding! Almost every minute character, some who appeared for even less than a split second on-screen (and even many who haven't appeared at all!) have been treated with loving care, with detailed biographies accompanied by beautiful pictures exclusive to this book! A unique feature of this series is the use of in-universe language, which is delightfully funny to read. This in-universe language is used also in the episode descriptions, which give us previously unseen views and perspectives of the characters. What's more, the shout-outs and Easter eggs in this book are numerous, referencing even the most obscure of Transformers references as well as many other pop culture elements. They are so well done that many fans have not even finished documenting all the references!
Alone, these would be enough to sell the book. Yet, the authors Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster added a whole bunch of behind-the-scenes information on the creative processes that go into making the show and the Transformers toys. Personally, these were among my favorite aspects of this book, as it provided me with a good look at the effort and love poured into making this project work.
All in all, this book is a must have for any fan of Transformers Animated, and would still be a delight for the casual reader. This book is really a true labor of love, and would not have been possible without the dedication of the authors and producers. It is my sincere hope that IDW continues this tradition for many future (or past) Transformers shows.
Now about the Almanac, the best parts for me were the bits about actually making the series, the concept toys that were never made and then what could have been for season 4.
