Without this critical content for a game as massive as Oblivion, this guide is all but useless. There is no way I could recommend this guide to anyone.
I also feel that the content of the guide is misrepresented and falsely advertised by both PrimaGames and Amazon's own description.
Additionally, there is no index included. For a nearly 500 page guide, especially without chapter numbers and a very poorly worded Table of Contents, an index is indispensible.
Beyond the missing content, the remainder of the guide is fairly useful except when it cross references the (missing) map pages.
Maybe I got lucky, or else they've corrected the mistake and the newer editions have all the maps.
Can't comment on the content just yet, but the book itself is beautifully illustrated and of high quality.
If you get duped into a solving a random quest while solving individual quests under a general category, there is plenty of online help for locating random quests; one site provides a detailed world map. My old friend google helped me find them.
So, why buy this laboriously-written manual?
First of all, it's beautifully illustrated, well-written, and almost devilishly detailed. To locate a random quest - I should have said `no' to the bugger -- I go to a website which is nicely indexed, and follow the walk-through. Usually, the Prima version when I find it is more complete and helpful than the on-line walk-through.
The world map the game itself provides (Play Station 3) is helpful, as well as its individual maps. The game provides pointers on the map to follow and also on its compass when your role-playing hombre is trudging through hill and dale.
From my experience, I have found the manual well-worth purchasing. I recommend buying it, and am giving it five stars.
Someone put tons of work into this manual, a work of love, and should be financially compensated, this at the very least.
