Format: Paperback
I understand that they wanted to focus on films from all eras of adult cinema, but it's hard for me to ever see something labeled as great when it just came out two seconds ago. I guess it was ok for the price, but I would've liked to see a better job done in terms of page quality (glossy would've been nice, especially for the photos). The book could also have been bigger. I expected more from something from AVN.

Format: Paperback
This book will serve as a good resource for those seeking out high quality porn. But I would have preferred if the films had been ranked from 1 to 500 or perhaps chronologically from 1972 to the present. Instead it's an alphabetical list and makes for somewhat boring reading.

The emphasis is on the most acclaimed directors such as Michael Ninn, Andrew Blake and John Leslie. So if your interest is in a particular porn star or a certain genre you may be disappointed. This is still a worthwhile purchase but it could have been much better.

Format: Paperback
When youre at the video store deciding what porno to rent it can get hard (no pun intended) every boxcover promises new carnal delights with a range of beautiful girls beckoning you to take home their dvd. Now AVN the industry bible has a book to help you sift through the crap to gat to the good stuff. The book lists 500 of the greatest adult films as well as interesting side bars on everything from best spoofs to top award winners not covered in the main text. A handy reference especially when trying to find a movie too watch with youre significant other.

Adequate review of older smut, and some interesting lists.
Do with they'd do a vol 2, taking up where they left off.

The very first movie I saw in the early 80's was Deep Throat and Alice In Wonderland. When the AVN Guide came out I bought it right away knowing all the movies that were rated were going to be someday the best of it's kind. AVN, what would I do without you, Thank You!
