As a self-proclaimed BIG Brady Bunch fan, I must say this book fell short for me. I prefer books that look back at the Brady Bunch with fondness; the writers of this book instead seemed derisive and jeering to me. I guess they are fans of the show (why else write a book about it?). But their commentary was snarky instead of humorous, and the overview of this world was not very complimentary. The BB is all about nostalgia and kitsch these days, not so much about making fun of the mores, times and fashions, and in this regard the writers failed to deliver.

In my opinion, Barry Williams' "I Was A Teenage Greg" was a much better look-back. Plus his was a first-hand account, and contained a full episode guide, too, making this tome virtually unnecessary.

Lastly, this book was published in 1990--far too long ago for any satisfying (or even relevant, at this point) "updates" on the cast. Of course, a book can't help when it was published. But, it does affect the satisfaction of the reader (THIS reader anyway). So, all in all, I didn't love this book.

**1/2 Two and a half stars only.
