    ClubOpolis Comment: This book must have been written for the near-sighted because the print is really BIG! Probably to compensate for the lack of content. After reading PPP and PCH (above), this book didn't have a whole lot to offer, but hard-core Simmer's should pick it up for the little new info it does have.
Each book has info the others lack. For example, The Official SimCity 2000 Planning Commission Handbook has two whole pages on Reticulating Splines.
