The Mirror 'The wittiest and most literate show on television.' The Times 'Fact: The Simpsons is the funniest sitcom of all time. There are more gags, more characters, funnier plots, funnier sub-plots.' Loaded --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Also, they tell everything you need to know about each episode in seasons 11 and 12. There's the stuff Bart writes on the chalkboard, quotes from the episode, a summary and hilarious pictures. With 2 pages for each episode, they have plenty of room to fit anything they want on it. They even do a The Stuff You May Have Missed section for every episode. They have even more information for the Treehouse of Horror episodes. 4 WHOLE PAGES! The episodes aren't even that great!
The book, I wouldn't consider short, but not long. The first book(The Simpsons) almost has 100 more pages than Beyond Forever! But, Beyond Forever has enough information that the few pages don't really matter.
You'll find EVERYTHING you need to know about season 11 and 12 in this book. Basically, it's amazing. I would reccommend this true work of art to any Simpsons fan. You could watch one Simpsons episode and still find this book interesting. Seasons 11 and 12 weren't included in the drop of ideas that has suddenly come into The Simpsons. The wonderful episode HomR lets you discover Homer's only stupid because he lodged a crayon up his nose as a kid. Plus, there's the crazy Trilogy of Error episode where it tells where Homer's finger was cut off by Marge and her brownies.
All in all, this book is AWESOME! Buy it.
You get your memorable quotes from episodes, your summaries, your "Movie Moments," etc. But my favorite part about the other guides was the little box that pointed out the "Things You May Have Missed." That box doesn't seem too thorough in this guide:
There are always more and more "in-jokes" in the newer episodes...so why does this guide talk about them less than any of the others? It doesn't make sense; it was a little disappointing.
What you'll find in those boxes in this new guide are a bunch of tidbits that waste time...they point out bits such as, "Bart is wearing his lucky hat in this scene, which he hasn't worn in two seasons." It's too bad that the writers missed things that I, a regular fan, can find without even taping the episode and using the pause button. But everything else was up to par!
I'll always love The Simpsons, but these books take watching the show to a whole new level, whether it's figuring out that voice cameo that's driving you nuts, or catching a joke that came and went too fast. Moreover, these books are just fun to look at, they are brightly colored, creatively arranged, and printed with the highest quality. This is a must have for any Simpsons fan!
This book follows the same format as previous versions but for the first time expands on the original idea. If you have the other two Simpsons books, you will not be disappointed with this one. If you are a fan of the show, I recommend this and the other two books to you. It is a must have. A truly entertaining and insightful book!

The setup of this book and its execution are just as well made as the two previous books, but at this point in the Simpsons career, they just weren't funny, just stupid. Read morePublished on Oct. 29 2003

The first book covers seasons 1-8. This third book in the series, like the second book only covers two seasons: 11 and 12. Read morePublished on April 2 2003 by Warren Holzem
I am probably the biggest Simpsons fan ever born! I know some of you would argue with that, and lets just say we're tied. Anyway, this book is amazing! Read morePublished on Feb. 15 2003 by Abby
What's the worst part about this book? The fact that it only covers two seasons (the eleventh and the twelfth) of The Simpsons. What's the best part? Everything else. Read morePublished on Feb. 13 2003 by Matthew Murray
I will keep this short so you can buy the book already. This book (along with the others in the series) is a great addition to watching the show. Read morePublished on Jan. 30 2003 by Todd Shyres
