Having bought the first one and being disappointed I hoped the second attempt would be slightly better. I was wrong. I found this book to be rather bland and severely lacking in detail. It covered too many episodes in too few pages and, to me, a fans' episode guide to a television series should be more than half a page of synopsis and a 5 second interview with a cast member with some random behind-the-scenes drawings and photographs shoved in to fill the back pages. Just like most other "official" guides to television series, it was too brief and not worth the £10.99 or so that I paid for it.
If, like me, you expect a lot more information and detail from an episode guide, I'd recommend "Beyond the Gate" by Keith Topping. Much less official with much more thought put into it.

As with the first book in the series you will get($11.87 seems just a little pricy to me)a nice forward and an informative first chapter followed by a number of pages about seasons 3&4. Each of the episode pages (some run 2 pages)will have a guest cast list, an episode photo, character quotes and a paragraph about the episode. Usually the best part of each page will be several following paragraphs about that particular episode with anectdotes given by various cast & crew.
The final chapters of the book contain actor profiles (each actor spoke with the author), character quotes and pictures. There are also sections on costume/set design, location work and a fan bit at the end. It's a lot of fun but not really informative if you want detailed information.

Okay, just the facts.
The episode guide is extremely informative. It lets you know what the episode was about without giving away everything about the story. The information given from behind-the-scenes for every episode is amazingly informative and reveals things even I - a news, spoiler and info hound - had never heard before.
The cast and crew additions are not to be missed. My favorite is the bit written by Teryl Rothery.
All the photos are black and white, but that can be forgiven. These books are well worth the price you pay!

Highly recommend for anyone who likes Stargate SG-1! March 27 2008
By Cygnisusa Ebay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It it chock full of very good pictures (except they didn't have many of Ba'al, my favorite hunk on the show). They tied in the mythology aspect of Stargate SG-1, and also the story arcs over the entire series of Stargate SG-1. It also came with a DVD that has a Trivia Game, Photo Gallery, and other cool bennies. I very higly recommend this to anyone who likes Stargate SG-1!!!!
