"Avengers fans are in for a real treat..." - LA Times
"The Avengers exhibited more style and daring than is to be had on all of Milan's runways, and more wit and winks... than the oeuvres of Oscar Wilde and Monty Python combined." -- The New York Times
"Exudes more sheer sexuality than American TV has previously handled... It's all high-wire melodrama, good-humoured fetishism and flamboyant self-mockery." -- Playboy

The book is divided into chapters representing each of the original show's seasons. Each season gets a brief write-up concerning various details, and then photos from episodes of that season fill out the chapter. The book also has a foreword written by series star Patrick Macnee.
Unfortunately not every episode is given a photo, and there is not a complete episode guide listed. This book is more of a pictoral "celebration" of the show, instead of a nuts and bolts history. But the incredible images (especially of Blackman, Rigg, and Thorson) more than make up for any shortcomings. Any "Avengers" fan would love to have this book.
Just received this book today and its a winner. Another great publication by Titan. Jam packed with photos in the 160 pages, and I wish it was twice the size. Great celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Avengers TV show that was so much fun. One of my all time favorites, alongside The Man From Uncle (hey Titan, how about a similar book on that great show?). Fans of the series will love this book, the size is nice and large, providing great coverage with the many photos that take us back to that special time. There has never been another show like it, and the great John Steed and Emma Peel never looked better. Of course, this book covers the entire run of the show (minus the New Avengers from the 70s), each season getting it's fair share of exposure. I love these books, full of fun and pictures, and leaving you wanting more.
Grab this book, you won't regret it.
Negatives: Again, this is primarily a photo collection, however, with that said, the text is rather basic with many omissions (along with one glaring caption error concerning the '98 film). Despite being an overview of photos from the series, many classic episodes are not represented and a small percent of the images selected for this text are sub-par at best.
Flaws aside, if you love this classic, amazing series, you'll definitely want to have The Avengers: A Celebration in your collection.
