Simply put, this book contains a fifty year history of Playboy. The reader is given a behind-the-scenes glimpse of everything about the magazine and everything the magazine is about- the photography, the literature, the lifestyle, the stars, the music, the clubs and, of course, the women. The photos are as interesting and informative as they are beautiful. The text is a history of the growth of the magazine as well as an inside look at the motivation for some of the long standing traditions within the magazine. It is truly a Playboy lover's guidebook. One word of warning, though: this book does contain nudity. Your wife may not understand and you should keep it away from your children.

Top quality print and color. While I don't feel comfortable displaying on my coffee table, it is perhaps one of the nicest books I own in terms of appearance and interest.
