I bought this book thinking it would be a good reference guide for future anime to watch. Overall, this book is decent. It offers a summary without spoilers and suggested titles if you happen to like a certain anime. However I can only offer 2 stars because there are so many errors in the book that it's off putting. To point out a few, the cover image (from Steam Boy) is labeled as from Tokyo Babylon, a character from Bleach is listed under JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and the index offers incorrect page numbers. I haven't gone through the entire book yet but I', sure if something small like that was overlooked then I would expect more errors.
