Good tips, May 4, 2023
Okay not to start off on a bad note I will say that the tips where very useful to me. However here are the two main things I had problems with:
1) Re-reading the Orginal Sims strategy guide which is the first half of the book. I've already read the strategy guide on its own, in Livin Large, House Party, Hot Date, and the Vacation strategy guides (is it necessary to have it part of every strategy guide?)
2) The pictures some of which where nice, but when trying to show the different pet tricks it was hard to see them because they're small, black and white photo's hard to notice the small dogs and cats in the pictures.
There are useful tips on housebreaking, breeding, winning the pet show, gardening, and caring for other pets like the turtle and fish. Also very helpful tables showing the new career choices. This was usefull for me at least as well getting to see all the new objects laid out telling me the cost and motive enhancments. Also this strategy guide is very easy to read, which helped me read through it in a breaze so I could go play the game as soon as possible.

How to play The Sims Original (found here), Mar 10, 2023
This is all about the original Sims and then towards the end gets in to the basics of Unleashed that one could learn from the program itself!
Complete waste of money that only looks good on a shelf!

Don't Waste Your Time, Apr 3, 2023
This book reads like it was written for four-year-olds and doesn't say anything more than the manual would. (If there was a manual.) Don't even bother ...

Latest in a Series, Jan 24, 2023
This is the latest in the Prima's series of Official Strategy Guides for the Sims and it's expansion packs. As with the previous books for the expansion packs, the first half of the book deals with the basic strategies of playing The Sims regardless what expansion packs you have. If you've bought a previous book in the Prima series, you'll want to go right to the second half of the book.
There's not a lot of earth-shaking information here. A Sims junkie with any Internet skills can probably find all the information that's in this book. But if you depend only on what you find online, you'll find lots of incorrect garbage as well. What you find in this book you can take to the bank as being correct. You also won't find all this information in one place online, and it won't be organized as well.
If you're looking for some previously unknown secret to be revealed, you won't find it in this book. If you want a little more insight into The Sims, and the Unleased expansion pack, you'll find it here. The insight I gained from this book has helped me enjoy the game a little more. I have no regrets about buying the book.

Very Cool, Jan 7, 2023
I love having pets for the sims. This helps a lot. But I have to say that the game stinks.
