The series, certainly, but not this book. I took a flier on it, as a fan, like everyone, of the outstanding series. Unfortunately, it's basically a hack job, padded out with summaries of the episodes, no inside information as to the creation of the show or interesting analysis of the shows themselves. I have come across a couple of intelligent books on Seinfeld - such as the BFI one - but I am still waiting for a decent Curbs book. This is the second one I have now wasted money on!

this is a very good back ground book which gives the history of how the series came about, with the second half of the book covering each epsiode in the order they are shown. As someone who is almost obessed with CURB i didnt think the book would have been much good for me as i know pretty, pretty, pretty as much as there is to know about the series, i was wrong , some very good background with some very interesting facts, i would recomend this book for the devoted fan or even only the curious one

Informative analysis (by an obvious fan) of Larry Davis's stories of Seinfeld & (episode by episode) Curb your Enthusiasm. Interesting thoughts on where the scripts come from in David's odd approach to life. Probably one for the devotees as opposed to casual reader.

OK.....I say it's Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good but I've only read the first couple of chapters so far. That said, for anyone that's an avid fan of Larry David (as I am) I think you'll love it. Lots of interesting trivia and behind the scenes stories. Enjoy!

WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY 5 Nov. 2010
By Ronald Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good: Larry David and the Making of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm" is an utter waste of time.

Why anyone would write a book about Larry David without any comedic or humorous depictions is ridiculous. It's like writing a book about sex and talking about friendship the entire book.

This book is overly academic, annoyingly pedantic and bore you to death vapid. I feel completely duped.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME on this drivel.

Josh Levine never interviewed or even spoke to Larry David in writing this book. He waxes speculatively the entire book.

Furthermore, I'm a huge Larry, Curb, and Seinfeld fan so know my stuff. Ninety-nine (99%) of the information in this book Josh took from the interviews on the Seinfeld Complete Set DVD. The DVD comes with extra back stories from Castle Rock and NBC executives, as well as cast interviews. And it's available for purchase in DVD form and is free on YouTube.

I wasted my money and time on this book, but I hope you don't!

TERRIBLE 4 Jan. 2011
By M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most disappointing books I've ever read. I am a huge fan of Larry David and was really looking forward to getting some insight into his work and life. I was sadly mistaken in thinking I would find it in this book.

As another reviewer noted, Mr. Levine did not have access to Larry David or any other interview source for this book. ALL of the information comes from previously published articles (and some of them are from real gems - the Ottawa Citizen and the Kitchener Waterloo Free Press, etc...Not exactly the pinnacle of entertainment writing). If you want to learn about Larry David, save your money and just do a thorough Google search - you will probably learn more than you would by reading this book. In all honesty, anyone with internet access and a library card could have written it.

Exacerbating the lack of source material is the fact that Mr. Levine fails to provide any analysis of the events in Larry's life. His decision to leave Seinfeld (one of the most successful TV shows ever) is summed up in two lines. Events are glossed over or summarized with no detail or insight. This is what I find most insulting about the book: why did Josh Levine think he was qualified to write this? He knows no more about Larry David than I or any other committed fan does, and has no more access to Larry or his colleagues.

The writing itself is awkward and inelegant.

Finally, I was appalled to note that this book was supported by both provincial and federal funding agencies. As far as I'm aware, Canadian arts funding is supposed to promote Canadian art. This is a sub-par, superficial, poorly written book about an American celebrity. Why on earth are Canadian taxpayers subsiding Mr. Levine? It's shameful.

As someone else said, save your time and money and don't bother reading this.
Pretty good! 3 Feb. 2014
By Glenn Turnley - Published on Amazon.com

Having seen every episode of Curb, and Seinfeld, there was not a lot new for me. It is arranged in chapters, some quite short, which go over the plots with some behind the scenes action of each episode. For the real fans of Larry David this book will be enjoyable.
Hope there is a new season of Curb real soon. Hope Suzie still has her psycho foul mouth!
Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good 4 Jan. 2014
By Steven Zisser - Published on Amazon.com

First half or so provided some interesting reading about Larry David. The balance of the book consists of summaries of each episode of Curb; although a fun walk down memory lane, more focus on Larry David and less on summarizing the episodes would have been appreciated
could not put it away 4 Dec. 2014

A must read for anyone who really appreciates the humor of one Mr. David.
Pretty, pretty, pretty damn good !
