I guess I thought this would be a lot more never-before-seen details and further reading. I would suggest, as other reviewers have already suggested, that this is a good book to have at hand when you are doing a re-read.
It is not a standalone book, but it would enhance your enjoyment of the details as you read the series. Just don't expect, as has been implied in some of the fan sites and thus my disappointment - I'd built it up , that this is going to fill in any of the blanks for you. I love the Wheel of Time. I've been an avid reader of the series since I was in middle school and my friends decided to start reading it together.
I got lost in Randland and the adventures of the people from the Two Rivers. Finally, here were some of the answers that I sought that weren't included in the series! I have to say, however, that I was mildly disappointed. While there were nuggets of new information amidst the entries, the Companion really reads as nothing more than a giant and extended glossary from the rest of the books.
Some of the information was exactly as you would find it in various glossary entries, and some of it provided new and exciting insights Doing so would be most like reading the Dictionary. There was no sense of narrative flow, which I understand, but kind of wish it had. I would have most enjoyed this book had it been structured more like the Big White Book of Horrible Art.
Alas, we do not always get what we want. Perhaps in the next turning of the wheel? Don't buy this book if you're looking for something to sit down and curl up with and read. Do buy this book if you are looking for a resource to help you with second and third read-throughs of the series, as it will help you keep dates, names, and places in order.

I've read each of the books several times over the years, but reading the entire series with my copy of The Wheel of Time Companion handy was an entirely new and rich reading experience.
I believe that Harriet McDougal and the rest of the group that worked on this book succeeded in their effort to provide a reference book that is useful to WoT fans in a number of ways.
The detailed explanation of some topics that had previously been left to the reader to figure out is a wonderful provision, while at the same time Robert Jordan's desire for some things to still be left up to the reader to decide for themselves is supported by the fact that not everything has been given away, wrapped up, or fully explained.
It is worth its weight in Andoran Gold Crowns: I don't really like cliffhangers and long waits for closure. Thus, I tend to try and avoid series' of any kind book, TV, movie, etc. So, with the WoT series completed, a prequel released, and a TV series rumored, I decided it was finally time for me to dive into this behemoth of a fantasy world.
With 14 installments, each hovering around the page range, the Wheel of Time series is a massive time sink in not just the reading, but the comprehending and following along with locations, characters, plots, and of course a variety of cultures.
I am definitely of the type that likes to not only read, but completely dive into these fantasy worlds. I love maps, artwork, bios, backstory, etc.
The Wheel of Time Companion
The wealth of information available is one of the things that drew me to the LOTR franchise and what has made the WoT franchise such an attractive prospect.
That's where the companion guide comes in. It compresses a ton of information that I would otherwise be cataloging myself as I read.
Yes, like many times before, absent this guide I would be sketching maps complete with plotted routes of various characters and story arcs , creating flow charts of plots, and character trees with small bios. But, thanks to this guide, I don't have to.
The guide itself is quite comprehensive and provides a ton of information pulled straight from the source material. The most useful of which is the battle maps and character bios. That said, there are a few areas that I feel this guide is lacking in and, to be fair, perhaps with the current length of the guide, adding all of this would require a second volume.
The first, and most glaring, is a lack of pronunciations associated with each entry. This is particularly interesting because these pronunciations already exist at the back of each of the books so I found it odd that it would be excluded from this guide. Secondly, I would have liked it if the maps were given their own specific section in the book as opposed to being scattered about as they were. It's fine if you remember the name of the particular city or battle associated with each map, but if you don't then it's a bit of a scavenger hunt albeit a shorter one.
Additionally, WoT is a world full of quite diverse cultures which can sometimes be difficult to keep track of and I would have liked to see some sort of guide or identification chart included in this book to aid in keeping track of which culture was which.
Finally, there is a bit of a concern of spoilers and, while it is an issue, admittedly I don't know what could be done to avoid this.
To their credit, the Authors do warn of this in the Introduction section at the beginning, and as such I didn't dock any stars over it, just something for the reader to be aware of. Continuing on the subject of the Author's honesty, I must again credit them for being completely genuine out the gate about what this book is and is not.
They make no bones about the possibility of errors, inaccuracies, and even offer alternative sources of information available at the time of publishing. In all, it's an incredibly well written piece containing an indispensable wealth of information collected in a single volume. Whether you're just starting your journey down the Wheel of Time rabbit hole or are a seasoned veteran of the franchise, I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of this companion guide. A must have if you intend to take on the WoT series which I whole heartedly encourage you to do.
I feel like this is a great addition to the series for serious fans. Many people mentioned in other reviews that it contains previously mentioned information contained in glossaries at the back of each book. However, I only listened to the audio books. I had no idea there were glossaries.

So to me, this is a perfect addition to the audio books. I recommend it, especially for people who listened to the audiobooks.
