Yeah, but Wookieepedia has the same information along with way more than any other single Essential Guide. Plus it's free and constantly being updated with every new material released.
And also filled with Saxtonite garbage. But if you're into that nonsense, all the more power to you.

I don't really see the point in reference materials like this or Star Wars' Essential Guides when comprehensive websites like Halopedia (or Wookieepedia for Star Wars) exist and usually are more up to date.
Very good point, but for me there's an enormous satisfaction that comes from perusing the bound, professionally-produced official reference book, laden with gorgeous artwork - it adds something to the experience that the various fan wikis just can't replicate.

And the Halo book really is beautifully done. And it's reasonably priced as well - Amazon had it for about $22 bucks yesterday.
