Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the age of un-innocence. Enter a world where the sometimes shocking and often hilarious mating habits of the privileged are exposed by a true insider. The collection that launched the series that became a phenomenon, now, 10 years later, comes back in an anniversary edition. In essays drawn from her witty and sometimes brutally candid column in the New York Observer, Candace Bushnell introduces us to the young and beautiful who travel in packs from parties to bars to clubs. Meet "Carrie", the quintessential young writer looking for love in all the wrong places; "Mr. Big", the business tycoon who drifts from one relationship to another; "Samantha Jones", the 40-ish, successful, "testosterone woman" who uses sex like a man; not to mention "Psycho Moms", "Bicycle Boys", "International Crazy Girls", and the rest of the New Yorkers who inspired one of the most watched TV series of our time. You've seen them on HBO, now listen to the book that started it all.

Loved the TV show, great narrator, unbearable book

I was a big fan of "Sex in the City" on HBO, Cynthia Nixon is a GREAT narrator and enticed me to listen to this awful book much longer than I would have for any other narrator, but this book was SO AWFUL I COULD NOT ENDURE IT....and I am a HUGE audiobook fan.....JUST AWFUL.

I can see the seeds of what became a great TV show (and I am not a big TV watcher) but I admire the writers and actors of the HBO production about a million times more now that I know what they had to work with originally.....

- Doggy Bird "Avid reader of classics and fiction, history and well-written genre novels. Music lover and huge audiobook fan."

BLECH!

This was so disappointing! I am a huge fan of the HBO show and of Cynthia Nixon's narration, but this book is nearly impossible to follow. There's no point to it at all. What a waste!
