'24' has become quite the phenomenon over the past 6.5 years & I must admit, I got sucked in right away. I am now a true '24' junkie that cannot get enough. I collect all (& I do mean all) of the merchandise such as, all of the DVD BoxSets, apparel, mugs, trading cards, even a Jack Bauer action figure! But most prized (other than the DVDs), is my '24' book collection. I own EVERY SINGLE BOOK ever written on the show, wether it's a reference book, a mass-market paperback, graphic novels, I even have all of the issues of the Official Magazine (I subcribe)! But, the book @ hand here, '24:The Offical CTU Operations Manual' is in a league of it's own, in a great way! It takes place as if CTU were real & if you, the reader were a new recruit. So, the book is written in a fictional tense. There's even a Foreward by Jack Bauer (which was written by Kiefer Sutherland)! It is lavishly illustrated w/ some never-before-published photos from the 6 'Days' (Seasons). The 'clamshell' boxed case that it is covered in is stunning, w/ the '24' digital logo engraved on the front. Having a degree in Criminal Justice myself, I could tell you that some of the field info is accurate (i.e., SWAT hand signals, Phonetic Alphabet, etc.). I love the volume, & the packaging makes it ever so elegant on my '24' designated bookshelf. The only thing that I found absolutley unbelievable was the low price for such an elaborate volume.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
