The book itself is really awesome for people who love these kinds of data guides. Each case is given a short case summary, a explanation of how the incident happened, lists of characters, important pieces of evidence and locations, and a character relation chart. Then the events of each seperate day are summarized. Finally, there's a timeline detailing all the events that happen (for example how the murder was committed/what the murderer did afterwards, but also who the protagonists questioned when about what, also in court). Some key events/terms are also highlighted for each case. There are also lists of which characters appear in each game, and in which case as chronological lists for the cases.
There are some 'bonus' pages too, like a guide to all the hero shows featured in the series, or all the animals. There are even pages on Surviban (the original prototype of the game) and on on Ace Attorney, with all the English names for the characters.
As for the interviews, there is basically one for every 'era': Takumi and Iwamoto talk about the original trilogy, Yamazaki and Iwamoto talk about the Ace Attorney Investigations games, Horiyama and Iwadare talk about the music, Yamazaki and Fuse talk about 5 and 6, Takumi, Nuri and Kitagawa talk about DGS and Takumi, Yamazaki and Eshiro talk about the series in general and the future. As for summaries/translations, I still have to read them to see how much of it is actually new material (I saw for example that Takumi mentions a lot of things he has already mentioned in various interviews in the past in the first interview).
