Misleading and horrible. Instead of "True Blue: The Real Stories Behind NYPD Blue" it should be titled "The Making of NYPD Blue with a Few Stories Thrown In". That's what this is.
I don't care who decides how many curse words can go in the show and where. I don't care who and how they decided who gets what role. I wanted REAL STORIES BEHIND NYPD BLUE and that is NOT what I got.
I "read" until about pg. 109 and quit. During those over one hundred pages I read exactly two stories on what a show was based on and each consisted of a few paragraphs at best.
Lastly, the writing is only just better than "sucks". I'd have been pissed to no end had I paid even a quarter for this crap.

Though NYPD Blue has been off the air for some years now, it was interesting to read this account of the inception, actual police cases which led to episodes, and the background of Milch, the co-creator and Det. Clark, the creative consultant of the series. Well written, filled with anecdotes, and containing several pages of photos, this is a quick read which will be especially appreciated by anyone familiar with the show.
