Hitting the Books: The slow death of the strategy guide | Gaming - Engadget

Welcome to Hitting the Books. With less than one in five Americans reading just for fun these days, we've done the hard work for you by scouring the internet for the most interesting, thought provoking books on science and technology we can find and delivering an easily digestible nugget of their stories.

Andrew Tarantola, Senior Editor at Engadget suggest, Why pay for the hardcopy when you can get the walkthrough for free?

Doug Walsh, bestselling author of The Walkthrough: Insider Tales From a Life in Strategy Guides
Diablo III was a record-smashing success, selling an estimated 3.5 million copies in twenty-four hours, no small feat for a PC exclusive. To this day, it remains the fastest-selling computer game of all time, having sold 10 million copies in its first three months. And over 14 million unique players took up arms in defense of Tristram within a year of its release. Our guidebook sold comparatively well, anchoring itself in the Amazon Top 25 throughout the launch window.

But the work was far from over.
