"When it comes down to it, these are great books that are extremely useful. I’m a baby DM of not quite a year, and I feel like every time I open one of these books, I find stuff I can use that will help me round out stuff in my campaigns or level up my DM skills.... I do think even experienced DMs will either learn new things or at least be able to pull from the long list of villains next time they hit a brain block or need to create something on the fly. Having extra one-shots around never hurts anyone either....Overall, I feel like these are the books you didn’t realize you needed until you start flipping through them, and then you realize you need not just the book in front of you but the rest of the series as well.
