There is no way that ANY book could have every fragrance in production (it would be too big to print!) but it has many fragrances that are important to Basenoters, including many designer and niche fragrances.
Think of it this way The_Cologneist: Perfumes The Guide will never replace all of the online resources that you have access to at sites like Basenotes, but it is a nice, easy reference guide that is fun to read, extremely informative with tidbits from certain fragrances history and background & entirely subjective (just because Turin and Sanchez love it or hate it, does not mean you will agree).
I treasure my new paperback version but I will never get rid of my old hardcover copy simply because Luca Turin signed it for me, when I met him.
