The West Wing Script Book is a unique volume containing six scripts from the television phenomenon - winner of 22 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series. The show has also won the Producers Fuild Award, Directors Guild Award, Writers Guild Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, Golden Globe, Humanitas Prize and the Peabody Award. Now, for the first time, you can relive your favourite moments from these superlative scripts. This volume includes some of the most emotive and best-loved episodes from the first two series, including the Emmy Award winning In the Shadow of Two Gunmen. Also featured is an exlusive interview with creator, writer and director Aaron Sorkin, who explains how this idea for a political drama show became one of the most successful of all time, despite being told that 'shows about politics don't work'. These scripts demonstrate TV at its best, and are a thing to treasure and savour, time and time again. 'President Barlet... is the best world leader that never was. Then there's the writing, the reason that The West Wing is so good. Sometimes... the dialogue reaches such levels of perfection, I could weep.' Evening Standard 'With this wonderful political drama, the writer Aaron Sorkin has created a cast of "savvy political operatives" who you would not only wqnt to run the country, but wouldn't mind letting into your life. The sense of brilliant people behaving honourably cannot fail to be moving: in the George Dubya age, we need this more than ever.' The Times 'When it's like this - fast, funny, moving and smart - The West Wing is about as good as TV gets.' Mirror 'The show remains one of TV's most satisfying hours, a savvy blend of great acting, whip-smart dialogue and grand gestures. If ever the time were ripe for a romantic saltue to the value of public service, now would seem to be it.' Robert Bianco, USA Today 'The TV show of the Year! Prime-time's snuggliest blanket in which to curl up, The West Wing is terrific and only getting better. Grade: A.' Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly
