Is there any information about it being released in the UK and other countries? This isn't on Amazon UK yet.

They are really trying to bilk this for all the cash they can get .. I mean really? Tell folks to read the freaking books . .. . or listen to the books on audio . .

Eh? It's about the TV series. Yeah, it has a bit of background info, but mostly it's about the production, not about the books. So why would reading them be useful?

I've read the books (several times) and followed the series and just received this a Christmas present from my brother...

I am really pleased! It's a nice gift for a fan, no need to be so negative about it!

I got it too as a Christmas present (along with the Lands of Ice and Fire and A Feast of Ice and Fire). Can't wait to take a look at them !

If you don't want it don't buy it. I bought it and it was quite nice. Every dollar HBO makes from this show increases the likelyhood of it going all the way.

It's pretty cheap on Amazon for what it is - the cover is beautiful, as are the photos inside. I received it for Christmas and it's a lovely thing to have.
