Format: Paperback
This is an essential read and travelling companion for anybody intent on visiting the small town of Springfield whilst backpacking the USA. You will find information in here that you will not find in the other more well known backpacker books such as Let's Go and Lonely Planet. A complete accommodation listing complete with pictures and descriptions of everything from the history of the establishment to the staff and usual clientele, make picking your chosen place to sleep in Springfield so, so easy.
Attractions are extremely well covered as well with everything from the historical decaying monorail ruins to the Itchy and Scratchy studios. You won't miss out on a thing to see in Springfield if you take this book with you. Seriously you have to buy it. Want to read up on a bit of history to impress the locals? Well you can with this book. There are three pages detailing the founding of Springfield by Jebediah Springfield as well as the history of the two most influential men in Springfield's history, nuclear power tycoon C. Montgomery Burns and America's favourite entertainer Krusty the clown.
This guide also contains a complete listing of Springfield's options for food whether dining or just stopping for ice cream. Nightlife is covered as well with an inside guide by local raver Kirk Van Houten. Those who love shopping will not miss a thing either, every shop is within, in complete detail. Don't know when the best time is to plan your trip well then your in luck. This guide contains every annual event in Springfield from Whacking Day to the Do What You feel Festival. There is also a survival guide at the back. Low quality guides leave this sort of thing out in a hope not to discourage you from visiting thereby you will still purchase their book.

The Simpsons Guide to Springfield is an excellent book. The format of the book is simple: You read it as if you were visiting Springfield as a tourist. You learn about local attractions, like the Noiseland Video Arcade and Springfield Hydroelectric Dam, places to stay, like the Sleep-Eazy Motel and Rancho Relaxo, places to eat, like Two Guys from Kabul and Jittery Joe's Coffee Shop, places for your nightlife, like The Aristocrat and Shotkickers, places to shop, like the Crypto Barn and Wicked Access, about Annual Events, like the Springfield Chili-Cook Off and Film Festival, and about dangerous happenings and people, like Sideshow Bob and radiation. Each place or thing or person has a detailed description. The book also has short essays by Dr. Hibbert, Kirk van Houten, Bart, Reverend Lovejoy, and more. There is a picture on almost every page, and hilarious captions. There is also information on rare artifacts in Springfield. This book is is sure buy for Simpsons fans.

Format: Paperback
This book, disguised as a travelogue, is a cute tour of the city of Springfield that works best for seasoned fans of the "Simpsons" TV show. The producers have always shied away from having any set layout for Springfield, so don't expect to find any maps in here, any routes from the Simpson home to Springfield Elementary or anything like that. Instead, it's an amusing look at the various places that have made the show funny.
The book takes a lot of the show's minor jokes -- the two "Nick's" bowling shops in town, for instance -- and expands them slightly to have little entries for the "visitor" to Springfield.
People unfamiliar with the show won't get the point, but those of us who have watched and loved it for years will. The most fun in the book is reading the entry for a place or "artifact" and trying to recall which episode it was used in -- kind of geeky? Maybe. But still a blast for the Simpsons fan.

Springfield has been one of cartoon animation's most interesting and unique cities. Where else can you visit the Kwik-E-Mart or Springfield Tire Yard? How about celebrate Whacking Day or the Chili Cook-Off? And where else can you meet celebrities like Krusty the Clown, Kent Brockman, Troy McClure, Fat Tony or Blinky, the three-eyed fish?
You can do all this and more in "The Simpsons Guide to Springfield". In addition, various people throughout the book are interviewed on "What's Right About Springfield?" Few of their comments are truly insightful, but all are hilarious.

As a huge fan of the simpsons, i got this booking believing it would be entertaining, not for simpsons information. This is one of the most boring books I have ever read. Well, that isn't true because I returned it after reading about 40 pages. Save yourself some money and buy Bart Simpsons Guide to Life or a different book. In the words of the Comic Book Guy, "WORST BOOK EVER"

Ten years on TV and you think you know Springfield pretty well, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Filled with genuinely funny material never even hinted at on screen. Essential Simpsons reference!

Format: Paperback
This book has a truckload of information, but is only good for the true Simpsons fan. It is set up like a real travel book, and all the places in it have been visited on The Simpsons. When you have this book, you can get a better picture of what's going on between scenes.
