Helps to decipherthe DMG and make the idea of being a DM much less threatening. Sometimes all it takes is to simlify ideas to make them more accessible. Suggests great ideas for making worlds come to life and adventures to encounter. As a novice DM I found it very helpful and a source of great ideas.
An excellent book for people both new and experienced with DMing. It has great tips and reminds us of the little things we tend to loose track of. A great addition to any gamer's library.
