I recently purchased all three editions of The Book of Random Tables, and I'm more than pleased with all three.
The third book has some very useful random encounter tables for deserts, woodlands, and roads, as well as more of the usual filling rooms and storage with sensible random items. My favorite table in this book is probably tied between the 'Thieves Guild Quests' table and the 'Epitaphs' table - being able to quickly nab some inspiration for when players decide to read a random gravestone is invaluable! Whether you have players who do unexpected things (and who doesn't) or want to add some touches to your planning stage, these books are all steals at 8 dollars each.
Beautiful cover art.
Thin and Light - no wasted space.
Easy to read.
Creative and useful tables.
No Table of Contents, but the book is nothing but the tables, so tabbing it is easy.
This book is the first one that I'd say has a bit of padding. Food tables are not inherently bad to include, but a whopping nine of the ones in this book deal directly with foodstuffs. That kind of emphasis feels a little excessive.
