If you've been going through withdrawal since "Breaking Bad" ended its TV run in 2013, here's a way to get a quick fix.

"Breaking Bad: The Official Book" (Sterling, $19.95) is the ultimate fans' guide featuring a complete episode breakdown, hundreds of photos from the series and on the set, an extensive interview with showrunner Vince Gilligan, trivia (the Bad Chemistry Quiz offers posers like "How many bodies have we seen dissolved in acid on screen?") and more.

The book, edited by film critic David Thomson, is broken down into seven chapters, starting with "Elements Timeline," which summarizes all five seasons of the show. "Breaking Down Breaking Bad" takes a more analytic look at the series, including some of the show's influences, such as Brian De Palma's "Scarface." And "Crystal Clear" is a visual treat that spotlights the show's striking cinematography.

There are also interviews with producers, a listing of the show's awards and nominations, interviews with the people who made all that "Bad" music and many more Eureka moments.
