Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Tough guys, goodfellas, and made men have captivated our imaginations since The Godfather appeared on the scene in the 1970s. But the runaway hit series The Sopranos heralded a whole new approach to mobsters -- hey, they got feelings, too, you know what I'm sayin'? Now fans can get an insider's look at the world of Tony Soprano and his family with this fact-filled, handsomely illustrated book.
Chicago Sun-Times
The best drama on television...It's why you get HBO, it's why you get cable, it's why you get a television.
Denver Post
Television at its best.
