This book is really all about interviews with the various cast, producers, directors and production crew of Lost. It covers only the first two seasons so there's nothing on Ben and Juliet yet. It does however include the majority of the 16 powerhouse cast, like Jack, John, Sawyer, Kate, Hurley, Michael, Mr. Eko and many more.
If you're looking to find out about the secrets of the island, you probably won't learn anything new compared to watching the show. Instead, the interviews here have the actors talk about their experience of acting in Lost and their interactions with other actors.
There's plenty to read on their thoughts about the plot and chemistry between characters. You'll find out that they know as little of the plot prior to shooting, just as the audience prior to watching. The more interesting things to read about are how wonderful it is to shoot in Hawaii, where actors have moved in to stay during production. It's like a dream job excluding the insect bites in the jungle. With the production crew, they reveal how their shoot their scenes and create props like the Black Rock -- from Styrofoam.
If you're not a subscriber of the magazine, this book is a very attractive alternative to catch up on the happenings behind the scenes. The photography and layout design are really beautiful.
Lost fans will find the value well worth the price, costing less than 2 issues of the magazine.

As you would expect, "Lost: Messages From the Island" contains interviews with all the main cast members, including Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, Terry O'Quinn, Jorge Garcia, and Josh Halloway. There is also a foreword by writers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. But we also get to hear from the Director of Photography, a couple of episode directors, and a production designer. The book features a ton of images, including official production photos, candid shots from the set, storyboards, and art department drawings.
It should be noted that this book covers only Seasons 1 and 2 of the show, so it does not represent the complete series. For a more complete (and more expensive) book on all things Lost, try this: Lost Encyclopedia
Overall, this book looks like it's worth a lot more than it is actually being sold for. I was very surprised at how high-quality is was when it arrived. The articles are thoughtful and give interesting insight into the making of the show. I've uploaded some pictures in the customer images section, so be sure to take a look.
If you are a fan of Lost, give Messages from the Island a try.
