This book covers almost everything about the show - from its initial conceptual formation by the producers, to chapters dealing with background info on the show and the characters, stories from the actors about how they were cast and how they perceive their characters, as well as interesting quotes from the the producers, and background info from the set and costume designers. Personally, I really love those extra tidbits!
The bonus DVD included with the hardcover edition is a nice touch; it contains a short documentary titled "Queer as Folk: Behind The Camera With Cast and Crew", narrated by Peter Paige (although I should point out that the exact same short doc can also be found as a bonus feature on the Season 3 DVD set, so if you already have that, then you won't be seeing anything new).
My one regret is that this book only covers seasons 1-3, and that they never published another book for season 4 & 5.
Overall, I'd say that this book was worth it for what I paid.
In addition to some great photographs of the entire cast (not just our favorite main characters, but everyone including Jennifer and Daphne!) this book contains a brief description of all episodes from Seasons 1, 2 and 3 (season 4 begins in 2004).
The episode recaps are a handy reference to the DVD collections, if you have those, or just as a reminder of plot sequence, and the information is accompanied by photos from the episodes explained.
Each individual character is profiled as well as the actor/actress who portrays them, again with accompanying pictures and stills. Some of the photographs are familiar, the same posted on the QAF Showtime site, but others are new.
Color photography is used throughout and the quality of the paper and the book itself is outstanding.
The Bonus DVD at the end of the book (attached at the back page) contains some fun stuff and some is brand-new, not featured on the Season 1 or Season 2 DVD collections.
I would highly recommend this Queer As Folk book to any fan of this outstanding series.
