An in-depth look at every episode, with highlights, music, and nitpicks outlined at the end of each one
Chapters on the influential television series The Prisoner, Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time (a favorite book of the Others), Eko's Jesus stick, the real David Hume, and the online game The Lost Experience

Lost, the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning hit television show, has become renowned for its complexity week after week, sending both cult and mainstream fans to the Internet, encyclopedias, or religious texts as they try to figure out the keys to some of the mysteries.
If you're feeling as lost as the survivors, then Finding Lost — Season Three: The Unofficial Guide will help to put the pieces of the puzzle in place. When author Nikki Stafford released her first volume on this series, covering seasons one and two, the book was an immediate success, and fans everywhere were touting it as the best of the Lost books on the market. Stafford's was the only book to cover each episode in-depth, as well as provide chapters on books referenced on the show, historical figures, religious iconography, and other background materials that put her readers far ahead of other viewers who weren't catching all of the clues.
Now, in Finding Lost — Season Three: The Unofficial Guide, Stafford continues to delve into the mysteries of this show to help her readers piece together the puzzle.

Whether new to the show or a diehard fan, this illuminating guide to the Emmy and Golden Globe Award–winning television program Lost helps viewers piece together the latest additions to the puzzle from season three with detailed discussions of the multitudinous characters, their spotty backgrounds, and the mysterious islands. Thorough examinations of each episode provide fresh insight into the baffling world of both the plane crash survivors and the Others—including why the Others have compounds on both the main and smaller islands, how each organizational hierarchy developed, and who is really behind the Dharma Project—while additional chapters explore the historical figures, books, religious iconography, and other clues scattered throughout the show. Dozens of previously unpublished on-set photos and new cast member biographies are also included.
