Hey, party people, I'm writing this review in response to those that have heard about this book and were thinking about purchasing it. Read my review below for all the details! I purchased this book under the impression that I would see some never-before-seen pictures of my favorite Victoria's Secret models. BOY, WAS I GIPPED! I mean, how can you go wrong with a book that has pictures of Victoria's Secret models, right? That's what I was thinkin'. While the book offers a lot of nice photos (including some with partial nudity), the big problem is that a lot of these photos were already printed on other publications! Imagine the disappointment when I plopped down $150 for this book and I didn't see very many new photos! A majority of the images can be found on the Victoria's Secret website as well as the author's website, and to be honest, that is NOT what I bought this book for! I expected some outtakes and maybe some personal pictures, but that would've been too much to ask, WOULDN'T IT?!? While there are some sexy images of models like Adriana Lima, Marisa Miller, Heidi Klum, and a few celebs which I won't reveal, there isn't enough new content to make up for the fact that this goddamned book is $150! I expected numerous photos for most of the models only to see that someone like Marisa Miller only has FOUR photos in a 300-page book! NOT WORTH $150!!! As a coffee table book, the presentation is a great read for fans of the models featured inside, but just don't expect any really breathtaking photography. Seriously, it's just a buncha models frolicking half-naked on a beach, what do you expect?!? The book itself is massively heavy (over 10 pounds) and oversized and comes in its own cardboard keepcase with plastic handle (to hold like a briefcase). Again, STILL NOT WORTH $150!!! To sum it up, the book was a major disappointment. I expected some beautiful and sexy photography, only to see that I could've just looked at a Victoria's Secret catalogue or Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue instead. But if you STILL feel like purchasing this book, be aware that not very many Barnes & Noble stores carry this book in stock! If you must have it for your collection (for whatever reason), purchase it online and try to get as much discounts as you can! DO NOT buy this book at FULL PRICE! --PRESENTATION: 4/5 --CONTENT: 3/5 --BOOK VALUE: 1/5
