From Booklist

Friends fans around the world are mourning the end of the show's 10-year run, but they'll have this lavishly illustrated book to console them. Photographs, both from the episodes and behind-the-scenes, abound, but the many "exit interviews" will be what draws readers. Interviews with the primary six cast members, the show's creators, and some of the prominent recurring guest stars make up the majority of the text in the book. Die-hard fans might know most of the interesting tidbits--that Monica and Joey were intended to be the show's main couple, not Ross and Rachel, or that Monica and Chandler's romance was supposed to be short-lived--but some of the frank discussions in the interviews (like the other cast members' worries and frustrations over Matthew Perry's long battle with an addiction to painkillers) will intrigue passionate friends fans. A guest star notes that "Disneyland and the friends set are the two happiest places on earth," and everything the cast and creators say backs that up. Fans will seek out this fun retrospective.

10 years. 10 years is a long time indeed. Plenty of time to get to know smelly cats, ugly naked guys, yettis, and a certain Miss Chanadler Bong. When all is said and done, this show about a group of six friends had just as many little quirks and infamous characters and situations(likes the ones mentioned above)as that other NBC behemoth, "Seinfeld". Looking back at the pictures through the seasons and re-discovering the moments when you first met Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey, is quite special. Remembering and reminiscing why you liked and fell in love with everything about it in the first place. This book, in celebration with the "Friends" finale, is a nice little keepsake to have as a lasting little nod to the sitcom. Very few shows have the success and longevity that the show had. All the media hype, attention, and of course, the hair do's you just gotta have!. I don't know why it says it's just being released now as I have had my copy for almost a month now. There has yet to be a real book on the "Friends" legacy, and this one isn't it. However, I don't think that were it's intentions. Written by David Wild, who I believe is(or was)a music journalist for Rolling Stone, the book goes over the show and seasons in photos. Photos galore. There are interviews with each cast member, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer. They talk about when they first got the show, and the reaction soon afterwards, and the ups and the downs and the struggles and the backlash and now, the ending. It would of been nice to get sections on the people who were in the supporting/recurring cast throughout the show's run. People like Gunther, Janice, The Geller's, and so on.Read more ›

If you are a huge fan of the show, don't even think about it, just go get your own copy since it's still available. Who knows what would be the price of this book 5-10 years from now in ebay.

I love that instead of a big book with episode guide (If I want an episode guide, I'll get it in the internet) of the whole series, the book put a lot of pictures of some of the memorable scenes in each season. And then there are captions describing the photos as well as some short quotes from some of the guest stars about their experiences doing the show. Most of them said that it was such a great set to be in becasue of the atmosphere provided by the cast. Another common comment is that most of the character actors that guested on the show are being exclusively recognized from the show in spite of their brief appearance on the ten year show. It's a fun read. I also like the commentary of the author in each season as he talks about the best episodes and the significance of that season in its original airing.

Then of course there are interviews with the six cast memebers separately. It's more than 5 pages for each friend. The executive producers (Kauffman, Crane and Bright) were also interviewed separately as well as a pleasant surprise interview from Maggie Wheeler. The book also has some rarely seen photos in rehearsals and friends parties etc.

There is also a separate section about some backstage stories of the finale. There were great pictures showing the cast having their final bow and in between takes photos.

Format: Paperback
There are some people who don't want Friends to end. And there are some people who think Friends should have ended long ago. I am in the former category! Now what am I going to do on Friday nights? (Being British, Americans have them on a Thursday night)
This book is totally what you need to try and relive all the good old days, when Friends was about Ross and Rachel, Rachel's hair, Phoebe's kookiness, and everything you said had to at least include "how you doin'?", "we were on a break" and "could I BE anymore ..."
This book is mostly big colour photos, so it didn't take me long to read - infact I had to read it straight away as soon as I got it. It goes through each season, and thankfully, doesn't repeat what all the previous books have done, and give a synopsis of each episode - it would have been a mighty big book if it had done that! Instead, it shows you the best photos from that season, and then has an interview with one of the cast members, talking about the end of Friends. There are also interviews with the three directors, the crew, and small interviews with Gunther & Janice. (The laugh is real)
What is wrong with the book is it completely ruins the last episode, for anyone who has been staying on Mars for the past couple of months, and has managed to avoid all the press coverage about the last ever episode. That's not me. Although I'm sure the final episode will still be a surprise. Instead, you get to see stills from the last ever episode, and it brings tears to the eyes. So I'll be needing LOTS of tissues when the last episode does finally come on.
Most of the cast members in the interviews, do their best to publicise that there will be another show to watch after Friends as finished - the stupidly named "Joey".
