Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Seinfeld is more than just a TV show, and David Wild's tribute is more than just an episode guide. As he states in his introduction, "...for me, Seinfeld is one of those rare redeemers of popular culture; like Sinatra, pasta, or the Beatles, Seinfeld shows that sometimes the masses get things exactly right." Woven around Wild's brief and opinionated summaries of 164 episodes are trivia quizzes, a history of the show's development, a review of the real Soup Nazi's restaurant, and most interesting of all, comments from many of the guest stars who have appeared in Seinfeld. Even George Steinbrenner makes an appearance and he reveals why his much anticipated guest appearance was cut from the show. Many TV and movie tie-in titles feel rushed and opportunistic, but Seinfeld: The Totally Unauthorized Tribute is clearly the work of a real fan, and it's a lot of fun. Favorite fact? Jason Alexander and Holly Hunter made their first movie appearances in the same film. - Simon Leake

A good tribute to Seinfeld but the very un detailed episodeguide ruins the main part of the book. The rest is exellent includinga lot of celebrity's all wrote about Seinfeld. The cast members film credits and all.

David Wild has created a single source of trivia about the show that has no equal. As Sein-withdrawl takes it's toll, the "Unauthorized Tribute" makes it a little easier to go on with life. I would like to know if David is going to "finish" the book by adding the remaining episode descriptions to a 2nd edition? Thanks for preserving the memories.

Buy this book!
For Seinfeld-lovers, it's a must-have.
For the uninitiated (or heretofore unimpressed), it will show you why the rest of America looks forward to Thursday nights.
David Wild is a wonderfully funny writer, packing the book with details you'll love to remember, facts you never knew, and much more.
I promise, it's worth it.

David Wild has done his research well and this book has the history of the #1 sitcom Seinfeld from it's humble beginning (it was nearly axed) to its final season.
There are many inside info that makes the reader feel more intimate with the show.
I personally love the wacky timeline that has hilarious reference to Seinfeld, especially this quip : after the contest was aired, masturbation became the rage in America! Get out!!!
The episode guide wasn't much help though, what without the guest cast name and memorable quotes. Also a few episodes were missing as the book was out before the show ends.
All in all it is a fun read about nothing and everything.

Format: Paperback
A disapointing read. Various sections read like hastily written padding and there is no real analysis of the Seinfeld phenomenon. The author also indulges in a lots of 'cutesy' chat with the reader, most of which is pretty well incomprehensible to a reader like me from the UK. If you're looking for a book like this try 'Seinfield Universe'. (A note to US fans: here in the UK Seinfeld is virtually unknown - it goes out at 11.15pm Tuesday nights on BBC2 and gets no trailers or promotion. How odd then that the BBC should release their own UK edition of 'Seinfield Universe'...)

The author of this book gives a lot of his opions, which we the reader don't really care about. The episode summaries are too brief. All in all it is not that good a read.
