Browsing the Chapter Headings and glancing quickly through the book gave me Goosebumps and chills. It immediately brought clarity and memory that truly seemed I was remembering things from a world I lived in for many years, over and over again...

The art is bad and the text is outstanding.

This book was published around the same time as the 7th book of the Wheel of Time: A Crown of Swords. So fortunately, you can read it after you've read A Crown of Swords without spoiling future books. Unfortunately, as a guide to the world of the Wheel of Time it's not completely up to date with the information known as of the story's conclusion.
