-Fun insight into their world from the girls themselves.
-A map and description of the mansion (who hasn't wondered exactly where the grotto is in comparison to the house?)
-Comments and information from the staff
-Recipes from the show.
-A guide to the pets and the zoo at the mansion.
-A guide to the parties and travel of the Girls.
-A majority of this book is recaps of each episode up to the end of Season 3. To make it a little fun, they have added a comment on each episode from ONE of the girls. I would have liked to see a comment from each girl, perhaps, or insight from the staff or crew. As it is, there is a lot of wasted space here that could have been made into a real treasure.
-Addresses and phone numbers to the GND sources (trashy lingerie) and places they have gone (Sunset Ranch, Culver Ice Arena). Some people might appreciate this, but I would rather they save the space for what we really want to know and let me just google the sources that I want to find.
-Lack of information on the questions that the girls get asked all the time (make up tips, health tips and, let's face it, the dirt! - there are a few, but we would all love to see in depth information).
Overall, I would recommend this for any fan, but I would caution them to be aware that the book is light on substances and full of fluff.
The young ladies that make up "The Girls" are charming in their roles in this series, and they continually show that they are living the life they are living because they have personal determination and a flair for this slice of show business. They have put their personal lives on hold in order to all be Hef's girlfriend,all at the same time. One of the cornerstones of the show is that each of them have been monogamous during their stay at The Mansion while Hef has been free to have his way with each of them. Various forms of serendipity brought them all together, and a genuine hit show has kept them together (until lately). So, there's a story here...all kinds of questions. The only one talking so far, Kendra, gives us occasional outbursts of truth during the show. The book gives us Foo Foo and some pictures that we have already seen.
On a positive side, the book has a number of good pictures of the Playboy Mansion as well as Hugh Hefner in this setting. Mr. Hefner comes across well in the book. He is an important part of the TV series, and is, in fair measure, the glue that pulls many of the episodes together. Whoever had the idea for the TV series (perhaps Mr. Hefner), had a good idea, one that is rejuvenating to some extent the Playboy brand. A book is a good idea as well, it just hasn't been written yet.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with the "extras" that the book contains, especially the section showing the locations of parts of the Playboy Mansion and grounds, the pages about each girl's pets, and the info and comments pertaining to the mansion staff, about whom not much is told on the TV series. Some people complain about the large number of pages devoted to the episode guide, but really this is just a convenient way to organize many of the photos (it's too bad that season 5 is not included to make that section complete, though). However, as an animal lover I was disappointed that the mansion zoo was given just 2 pages, so most of the animals who live there are not shown. As I said, I have much enjoyed the photos in the book, although I do wish that more were candid shots, and not so many posed ones. Also, it would often help to have captions with them identifying people and situations. I could note that although numerous photos in the book come close to nudity, there are no explicit nude photos, unless you count the several photos with girls (other than our main 3) who are body painted.
So, if you're expecting a juicy tell-all then you might be disappointed with this. But if you're like me in wanting a nicely laid-out and attractive book with interesting text and many good to great photos, then you'll probably be glad you got THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR. By the way, if you'd like to also have a book about life at the Playboy Mansions (Chicago and L.A.) BEFORE the arrival of the Girls Next Door, check out Inside the Playboy Mansion: If You Don't Swing, Don't Ring, which I also did a review of.
