Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Those who follow fictional columnist Carrie Bradshaw's every move will revel in Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell, a colorful companion complete with a hot-pink faux alligator cover to the wildly popular HBO series. New York magazine's "Naked City" columnist Amy Sohn offers an overview of the show's premise, photos of seasons past, biographies of and interviews with cast members and the show's producers, episode summaries and more. Hundreds of photos fill the pages, while sidebars (such as "The Rules, by Charlotte York" and a piece on why Carrie wears a tutu during the show's opening sequence) provide further insight into the show's quirks. There's also a glossary explaining what a Martha Stewart of Death is ("a woman who overcoordinates grief plans"), a fashion guide that shows the women of the show wearing Manolo Blahnik, Tahari and Emanuel Ungaro, a trivia quiz and a map showing Carrie and company's favorite New York hangouts.

From Library Journal

What is the best accessory a fashionable woman of the new millennium can acquire? An Yves San Laurent bag or a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes may become pass‚ but a book with the inside scoop on Sex and the City will never go out of style. Sohn, a novelist (Run Catch Kiss) and the "Naked City" columnist for New York magazine, gives the down-and-dirty details on seasons one through four of the HBO smash comedy, with a recap of story lines, standout clothes, quotes, behind-the-scenes activity, and, of course, accessories. Also included are biographies of both the actors and the characters, from the four core women to the men that come in and out of their lives. In full color, with a light wit and insider's knowledge, the book gets every envious woman (or man) as close to Carrie (or her shoes), Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, Aidan, and even Steve, as she (or he) is ever likely to get. Although it might not be as coveted as Tom Ford's Marquis bag, it is cheaper and will give readers something to talk about over their cocktails. Including an introduction by Sarah Jessica Parker, this will be requested. Highly recommended. Rachel Collins, "Library Journal"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is gorgeous, to start out with. The hard cover is set in an appropriate hot pink with reptile skin-like texture. Too cool. The book opens up to a short introduction by Sarah Jessica Parker. There are literally hundreds of pictures everywhere. You really get a 'behind-the-scenes' look at what goes on. There is a complete episode guide to seasons 1-4 with a break down of each episode. Some of the things I really enjoyed in the book were as follows:
1) For each main character, they have a biography and pictures of when the star was younger, which I think is really nice to see.
2) For each main character they have a huge line of pictures of the star in some of thier 'featured outfits'. You get to see all of the wonderful fashions as they wore on the show.
3) There is also a timeline for the four girls on everyone they have dated on the show, and who they 'did' and 'didn't do', which was a humorous touch. :)
There is SO much more that I will leave for you to discover when you read the book. I've been a fan of this series for the past three years and I was NOT dissapointed in the least. This book has it all...

This book is a real gem! It's packed with tons of photographs and inside information about the series. There are interviews with all of the cast that are interspersed throughout the book. There are wonderful photographs of the fashions, the locations, and of the cast. HBO and the cast thoroughly endorsed this book and it shows. Every episode of the past four seasons is discussed and all the tidbits of information are there. What a delight for the fan of this show. And the beautiful pink cover of the book is just to die for. This book is lots of fun that you'll be pouring over for hours and hours.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a perfect companion to the fantastic HBO series. It's well designed and written, colorful, and a great deal of fun. So much information is here, from the genesis of the project down to the design of the sets and the costumes. Every possible angle of this show is touched upon and then some! It's fantastic for fans of the series or even for fans of television production in general.
Many of the stories and anecdotes told by the cast and crew are almost as funny as the show itself! It's so interesting to read the skittishness of some actors or the little bits and scenes that got cut our because HBO thought they were "too much!"
I highly recommend this book if you've seen every episode and flat out love the show!

As a big time fan of the show, this book is a treat. It's gorgeous and has lots of show tidbits and quotes. My only complaint is that the Amazon product page for the Hardcover and Paperback edition shows identical reviews which leads buyers to assume they have identical contents. This is NOT true! The Paperback edition, published later, contains all 6 seasons, but the Hardcover edition, published in 2002, only goes up to season 4. Be careful when you order!

Format: Hardcover
It is sooo amazing. But do not expect something that you do not know already. The book has episode guides from season 1-4, and what the actors/producers thought of that episode. All the glamorous outfits worn by the girls are dissected, fantastic for those who want to copy the looks!! The pictures are all gorgeous. A little bit behind the scene pictures, but do not expect too much in that department. Readers definitely do get what the actresses were thinking when playing the show. If you have watched all the show, there is not too many things that you do not know already. But, this book is a must have if you a die hard fan or if you want a compliation of what happened in the first 4 seasons in print. Great memorabillia that fans will indeed keep sake in 10-20 years. I know I will.

My hubby got this book for me for our first anniversary (paper... ;>), and I couldn't put it down! It has gorgeous pictures, including captions telling you the designers of some of the ladies' outfits (not that I could afford any of them, but a gal can dream!)It profiles all the actors--even the guys! All episodes from the first 4 seasons are described in detail, with pictures and memorable quotes from the episodes as well as from the actors and behind-the-scenes people. I also loved hearing about the writers and how they draw from their own lives. This book couldn't be better!!!

I love Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte as if I knew them. So when this book was published, I didnt know what all the hoopla was about it, until I peeked inside...it was gorgeous! It does exactly what the girls do on the show...kiss and tell... character backgrounds(SATC and real life), clothing over the years, favorite moments--all drew me in to buying this book.
Although, they STILL did not release Mr. Big's first name in this book, it is a great buy for your friend(s) who just wont shut up about SATC on Monday mornings.... The book gives a nice synopsis of each episode from seasons 1-4. I will be more excited to buy a revised copy with seasons 1-6, because I love Sex and the City!!

What can I say, it's FABULOUS! I love all the pictures and the behind-the-scenes info. Even the pink alligator cover is great. The book is divided into seasons (1-4). If you love the show, you'll "LOVE LOVE LOVE" this book!
