Format: Paperback
I waited for this book to be released with anticipation of greatness; how wrong I was. He has descriptions of all the actresses, but offers very little information where to locate the

nudity. He ONLY offers one scene per actress, even if the actress is nude more than once, in a movie; sometimes what is given is not, in my opinion, the best scene in the movie. He only offers a brief description of the nudity in all the other movies he covers (breasts, full frontal, etc.), not the location. You have to fast forward the movie to find that nudity. I believe a better book on the market is Craig Hosoda's 'The Bare Facts Video Guide' that will be updated sometime this year. You can purchase it from his web site, barefacts.com. He offers ALL locations of nudity of the actresses in all the movies he covers, even if she appears nude more than once. Craig Hosoda's book has been available since the 90's and updated regularly. To me, he is the KING. I was very disappointed with 'Mr. Skin's Skincyclopedia'. I found it wanting.

Format: Paperback
As a fan of the site, MrSkin.com, for years, I've seen the copy evolve into funny and informative profiles and reviews that (almost) distract from the pictures. The publication of this book finally collects the bulk of those insightful actress profiles in a volume I can hold in my hands...at least one of my hands. But seriously, the book is hilarious and, even better, so knowledgeable about celebrity nudity that it is an essential reference when visiting the video rental store. Mr. Skin has done the world a great service. Can't wait for a collection of movie reviews!

I've long enjoyed Mr. Skin's witty appearances on the radio with Howard Stern, but I never joined his web site. When I came across this book in the store, I couldn't believe what I had been missing!

Everything -- and I do mean EVERYTHING -- you ever wanted to know about movie nude scenes is contained in this amazing volume. And the writing is not only packed with information, it's hilarious!

My only regret is that I didn't order this book before the holidays to give out to every guy on my list. But you can guess what they'll all be getting for their birthdays throughout the year.

I can not recommend this skintastic master-PIECE highly enough!

Everything you ever wanted to know about female celebrity nudity. As Howard Stern once said, "Mr. Skin, you're a genius, I know it and you know it". The book is very thorough with lots of humorous lists and witty reviews.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not the equivalent of Craig Hosoda's The Bare Facts Video Guide, which lists actresses and the movies they've been in as well as the movies and the actresses in them. Craig also gave time down-to-the-minute in each section where the actress appeared nude, as well as a short description of what she was doing when she appeared nude. The last edition of Craig's book that I know of is 2001.

Mr. Skin's book provides more information about the actresses, but not down-to-the-minute information about when she appears nude in the movie. For information about the movies, you have to look at the index and then find which actress on the refered pages is in the movie. I suppose this saves space as a lot of Craig's info was duplicated in the two sections, but I really liked Craig's down-to-the-minute info. However, Mr. Skin's book has info about movies after 2001, so it will be useful.

Format: Paperback
This compendium of starlet flash truly is encyclopedic. Whether you are a casual viewer of the female form as it shows up in a few frames here and there of mainstream celluloid or you're a serious student of brazen B-movie gratuitous nudity, this massive tome will dial you in to a vast universe of exposed skin that exists beyond the scope of your current knowledge. You think you know nudity? You think you know sex symbols? You think you know stars of grade-C exploitation? You might know more than most (I certainly thought I did), but you won't know it all until you've read through this stunningly informative reference book. The sick part is that you just might find yourself reading straight through the thing. The book is bigger than a brick and twice as heavy, but the prose is light, funny and fast moving. It's the kind of thing where you'll tell youself, Okay, I'm just going to read three more entries, then I'm getting off the toilet and going on with my life. Fifteen entries later, you realize this book could become a problem.

I used to wander aimlessly through the aisles of my video store without much of a clue as to what to rent for quality and nudity. Now I keep Mr. Skin's Skincyclopedia in my car for quick reference before i brave the video store shelves. Now I even know where to find Julie Andrews naked. My childhood memories of Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music are forever altered. And as I work my way through the rest of the book, I continue to come across many other hidden jems that I had no idea existed before I found this invaluable resource.

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST-HAVE! I'm a crazed movie "buff", yet I don't have regular access to a computer, and therefore have been unable to get a membership to the Mr. Skin website. But now I have this invaluable book, and I can choose the movies that have the actresses I love showing skin and plan out my trip to the video store. It's set up in an easy-to-navigate fashion, but unlike most reference books, it's also a completely entertaining read. I've found so many foxy actresses I never would have learned about had I not purchased the Skincyclopedia. Thanks, Mr. Skin!
