Doom: Totally Unauthorized Tips & Secrets
Doom: Totally Unauthorized Tips & Secrets is a book written by Robert E. Waring and published on May 1, 1994, by Brady Games. The book is a 118-page strategy guide; "totally unauthorized" refers to the fact that it is not officially licensed by id Software. The front cover highlights the US $9.95 price, which at the time of publishing was half the price of the official strategy guide.
A revised edition with 160 pages was later published on September 1, 1995, as Ultimate Doom: Totally Unauthorized Tips & Secrets, covering episode 4, Thy Flesh Consumed.
