While the photography and background info is awesome, it is clear that it was written before the final cut of the movie was put together. There are several scenes in the book which do not appear in the final film. Also, it appears the author did not pay much attention to some of the plot lines. I went and watched the movie again this weekend after reading the book and found quite a few holes. However, being able to gaaze at all the fashions and learn about things that went on behind the scenes made it a worthwhile read for the SATC junkie!
