I ordered copies of this book for myself and for Christmas presents and I was not disappointed – this book is sturdy, has heaps of awesome content, and even has a different texture on the cover for the “ripped” parts. I was expecting heaps of pages with different monsters and other strange things from Gravity Falls, but it also contains entries from Dipper, Mabel, Soos and more that make references to and tie-in with the show. Without spoiling it too much, if you have any interest in learning more about Gravity Falls, it's characters, or just want to feel like Dipper with a journal of your own, buy this book! They also came in good condition (one book has had a few pages start falling out after two days' use, but that sounds like more of a manufacturing error). I haven't even finished reading through my copy, and I already know much more about Gravity Falls and the Pines family than I did before – including Dipper's real name.
