The book's content focuses mostly on Goku. It is split up into three sections: "Adventure" which covers Dragon Ball and its movies, "Fierce Fighting" which covers Dragon Ball Z/Dragon Ball Kai and the Z movies, and "Space" which covers Dragon Ball GT.

The book's dust cover was drawn by veteran animator Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, who was also interviewed in the book. Three interviews can also be found throughout the book, all of which were conducted with character designers from each series: an interview of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z character designer Minoru Maeda, an interview of the Dragon Ball Z character designer Tadayoshi Yamamuro, and finally an interview of the Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT character designer Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru.
