From the Back Cover
Manhatten - and four successful career women tiptoe round the dating minefield armed only with mascara, Manolos and some truly Machiavellian schemes. Sex and the City is the award-winning hit comedy drama that candidly explores the social and sexual lives of four single New York City women. Manhattan Dating Game is the unofficial, intimate and indispensable guide to every episode of every season of the show, analysing Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Sam's experiences as they seek fulfilment in the Big Apple. The highlights of each episode are presented in categories such as Girl (and Guy) talk, Fashion Victims, Fetishes and Hey, Big Guy! Manhattan Dating Game also takes a look at Candace Bushnell's original book, on which the series is based, and assesses how the series evolved over its six seasons on television. If you find yourself wishing you could emulate Carrie's distinctive style or Samantha's gung-ho approach to seduction, then Manhattan Dating Game is the only guide you'll ever need.
