Format: Paperback
This trivia book has just about everything you need to know about Friends. It's not just question and answer, like in the trivia game; this book has multiple choice and fill in the blank questions! Plus, they're much more in depth and difficult to answer!
The questions are divided into seasons 1-9, which would make it easy for someone who missed a season to catch up quickly. Not only that, but there's an episode guide in the back that goes halfway through season 9. That's where the book lacks...
This book should have been released when the series ended. That way, it would be complete. This book doesn't even have the entire ninth season! I think they should have just waited and made a trivia book about the entire series, or at least waited to get the entire ninth. Other than that, this book is amazing, a MUST HAVE for any Friends fan...unless they come out with an update once the show ends.

As a huge Friends fanatic, I just love this book. It's so entertaining! The trivia is divided into nine chapters by each season and there are over a hundred questions pertaining to each season. Scattered throughout the book, you'll find various black & white photos from the show, multiple choice quizzes and bits of trivia (for example, you will find out when Jennifer Aniston's "The Rachel" hairstyle debuted).
In addition to all of the trivia questions, there's an episode guide (which goes all the way up to "The One With the Memorial Service" from the ninth season), eight pages of photos (there are some from the show and others are cast publicity shots), a foreword by Gunther (James Michael Tyler) and more!
"Friends: The One About The #1 Sitcom" is truly a must have for any fan of Friends. Lauren Johnson did a fantastic job of putting this book together.

This SO lived up to my expectations, and more!
This has to be the most comprehensive book of any TV series out there. The questions are tough, but organized by season which helps you along. I'm glad most of the questions are not lay ups -- not only is it fun to wrack your brain for the answer (better yet, watching someone else wrack their brain), but it makes you laugh when you think back on the episode and all the silly, little details you probably forgot about!
The author has also scrounged up some great trivia bits about the show, the actors, etc. which are really interesting. I also like the episode guide, although would love to have had more detail written on each episode.
All in all a great gift idea or pick-up book for yourself. Anyone who enjoys the show will LOVE IT!

This book is hilarious! It has Friends trivia and little tid-bits here and there about the show and guest stars. One of my favorite parts was Gunther's foreward. This is the book for any huge Friends fan.

I loved the book. Brought back so many memories. I thought I was a Friends junkie, but there was so many things that I had forgotten. Thanks so much for hours of entertainment it has and always will provide!
