Seinfeld was described as "the defining sitcom of our age" by Entertainment Weekly, and to the legions of diehards who tune in and turn on to this cult Classic--no matter what time of day or night the powers-that-be choose to screen it--this unique, quirky and, frankly, funniest-show-on-the-box-ever looks likely to remain, for eternity, the best.
The joy of Seinfeld, and perhaps the mystery of its success, is that really it is about nothing at all. Zilch. Just four friends, each with their own well defined and totally neurotic characteristics unashamedly on show, doing the best they can and somehow managing to turn even the most mundane of tasks or conversations into an epic kitchen-sink drama that brings everything sharply into perspective.
The next best thing to trying to track the series down in the TV listings is this complete collection of scripts from the show, dating back to the pilot episode and continuing through to the last scene of the second season. Classic episodes such as "The Pony Remark", which sees Jerry convincing himself that a chance encounter caused a Polish woman's death, and "The Chinese Restaurant", where Jerry, George and Elaine wait for a table at a restaurant, are all there alongside 15 other raucous scripts that will leave you with the Pythonesque urge to bore your friends with impromptu recitals of other unforgettable moments. Pure magic and pure genius combined. What more could you ask? --Susan Harrison
From the Back Cover
Jerry. George. Elaine. Kramer.
We've followed their misadventures for nearly ten years on Thursday nights. Here, finally, are the scripts of the first two seasons that will take you back to the beginning of "Seinfeld."
Featuring the first 17 episodes ever aired, "The Seinfeld Scripts" contains all the great lines that have kept us laughing for years: the pilot episode, "The Seinfeld Chronicles, " where it all began; George introduces his importer/exporter altar ego Art Vanderlay in "The Stakeout"; Kramer becomes obsessed with cantaloupe in "The Ex-Girlfriend"; Jerry and George meet Elaine's dad in "The Jacket"; is Jerry responsible for a poor Polish woman's death when he makes "The Pony Remark"?; Jerry and Elaine decide to become intimate again in "The Deal"; what will George do when he is banned from the executive bathroom in "The Revenge"?; and Jerry, George, and Elaine wait for a table in "The Chinese Restaurant."
It's all here: the award-winning writing of "Seinfeld," "the defining sitcom of our age." Created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld.
Elaine: My roommate has Lyme disease.
Jerry: Lyme disease? I thought she had Epstein-Barr syndrome?
Elaine: She has this in addition to Epstein-Barr. It's like Epstein-Barr with a twist of Lyme disease.
George: She calls me up at my office she says, "We have to talk."
Jerry: The four worst words in the English language.
Kramer: What a body. Yeeaaah...that's for me.
Jerry: Yeah and you're just what she's looking for, too-- a stranger, leering through a pair of binoculars ten floors up. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When you are traveling home from work you don't want a heavy read , you want something to pick you up from the horrors you've experience at work. It doesn't spoil the laughs that you may have seen the episode, you just grin in anticipation knowing that page by page is going to get better and better. George is classic and even Kramers visual humour strangly comes accross. Not too sure about Jerry's stand up in print. Buy a used copy ,I did and is excellent
There are so many gags per page that this will have you seriously impressed at the writing.
The Sienfeld & Larry David written episodes in particular fizz along.
The trouble has been that my family saw how much I enjoyed this book, and keep buying me other script books (like Frasier) which are nowhere near as good.
A great holiday read.
A great read that will eventually have you in tears of laughter
Well worth the money
