Sam and Dean Winchester know all the secrets their father recorded in his journal. Now you can, too.

Sam and Dean Winchester take up the reins of their father's quest to hunt down the demon who killed their mother. Lucky for them, John recorded the secrets of his dark crusade in his one-of-a-kind journal filled with hard-won knowledge of monster hunting and preternatural dealings--a tome revealing the heart of a man haunted by guilt after the death of Sam and Dean's mother . . . and a story that ends abruptly at John's own disappearance. Without the diary, Sam and Dean would have been lost during their adventures on the CW's Supernatural--and now, with the journal itself in your hands, you too can delve into the eldritch world of monsters, ghost, spirits and ghouls alongside television's hottest demon hunters.

An opus of hidden knowledge, John Winchester's Journal is a must-have addition to any Supernatural fan's occult library.

Being a HUGE fan of the show I had to check this out. I'm not sure anyone but a fan would really consider reading this. I agree with tiffanydw2.

Being new to Supernatural, I found this book very enlightening and really pretty awesome. It gives you the details on the majority of monsters, demons, spirits, etc... that you come across during the shows. The book also helps you understand just exactly how John Winchester became a hunter, how he learned what he did, how he raised Sam and Dean. There wasn't very much story arc but I didn't expect there to be. It is supposed to be a journal and a partial manual of sorts for the supernatural. Personally, I could barely put it down and I highly recommend it whether you're a seasoned Supernatural fan or a beginner.

LOVE the show. one of the best scifi shows lately. love the humor! but as far as the books go, i had trouble sticking to this one. if you want to look into the details of who the supernaturals are, this is the book for you! if you want more on john winchester... this will not give you much. such a shame. i expected more. i read bobby singer's guide first. i liked it better. it complemented his character in the show. since john is dead, he's only seen briefly in the show. i hoped this book would give more insight into his character. it did not. really good for anyone wanting to know the details of the supernatural beings tho!

Nicely put together.. Would have liked it more if it was longer. More detail could have went into this!

Book really sucks, but good if you need your Supernatural fix while waiting for all the seasons to come in :)
