From the D&D essentials line, this is a handy-sized paperback reference to the rules of the game. Everything you need to start questioning your DMs competence.

Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition grew to a massive size that I believe might have wound up being intimidating for new players.

- Most books with this rating I never finish and so don't make this list. This one I probably started speed-reading to get it over with.
- Average. Wasn't terrible, but not a lot to recommend it. Probably skimmed parts of it.
- Decent. A few good ideas, well-written passages, interesting characters, or the like.
- Good. This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think - it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was pretty decent too.
- Amazing.

So much math, but when you understand what the math is for, it's a very awesome feeling. I love playing D&D.

A must-have book for 4e DMs. It answers every single question you could possibly have about game mechanics.

A good book for learning the rules of 4th Edition, and also for reference. I may need to get another copy for my next campaign so my players can reference the rules at the same time I do.
