Overview

After six wildly successful and critically acclaimed season, HBO's Sex and the City lowered its curtain with an extraordinary finale befitting its remarkable run. Now Sex and the City, the first true comedy about sex and love from a female point of view (and the show that made cosmopolitans and designer shoes part of every single woman's night out), lives on in this luscious, uniquely entertaining, and one-of-a-kind book.
Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell, the official companion book, celebrates the show with behind-the-scenes stories on all six seasons and original interview with each of the primary actors. Ever wonder which designer made that outrageous outfit of Carrie's? What real-life stories inspired those shocking episodes? How many dates the fabulous foursome have really been on? Packed with over 750 full-color photographs, this stunning volume will answer all these questions and more with information not available anywhere eels. Topped off with a introduction by Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell will excite anyone who has experienced even the slightest flirtation with the sexiest, funniest show on television.

Admit it. In season or out, your mind is tuned to Sex and the City, HBO's Golden Globe–winning series. You follow the exploits, erotic and otherwise, of Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha, and Carrie, admiring their candor and their ability to meet and deplete romantic possibilities. If this description fits you, Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell will fill those dateless and dreary nights before the next episode. Its cast interviews, photographs, and behind-the-scenes details fill the bill; and the double-spread Dating Game chart will certainly astound you.
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.

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" Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

This would have gotten the full five stars but for one thing -- the last eight episodes of season six are not summarized as are all of the other episodes. The ending for each character is given, but I wanted the same treatment for the last(and in some ways most important)episodes to be the same as all the rest. I feel they could have waited a few months to release the book and treat all of the episodes the same. Other than that (and that the cover isn't as cute as the hardcover -- I just love the pink faux alligator), it's a great book for any SATC fan.

You must own this book if you are a true Sex & the City fan. There is a lot of great behind the scenes information. My favorite part of the book is the full color pages of each character and what designers they are wearing.
