The star-studded and sidesplitting follow up to The Andy Cohen Diaries.
The megapopular host of Watch What Happens: Live and executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise is back, better than ever, and telling stories that will keep his publicist up at night.
Since the publication of his last book, Andy has toured the country with his sidekick, Anderson Cooper; hit the radio waves with his own Sirius station, Radio Andy; appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher despite his mother's conviction he was not intellectually prepared; hosted NBC's primetime New Year's Eve special; guest edited Entertainment Weekly; starred in Bravo's Then & Now with Andy Cohen; offended celebrities with his ongoing case of foot-in-mouth disease; and welcomed home Teresa "Namaste" Giudice from a brief stint in jail.
Hopping from the Hamptons to the Manhattan dating world, the dog park to the red carpet, Cardinals superfan and mama's boy Andy Cohen, with Wacha in tow, is the kind of star fans are dying to be friends with. This book gives them that chance.
If The Andy Cohen Diaries was deemed "the literary equivalent of a Fresca and tequila" by Jimmy Fallon, Superficial is a double: dishier, juicier, and friskier. In this account of his escapades - personal, professional, and behind-the-scenes - Andy tells us not only what goes down but exactly what he thinks of it.

but got so draining and boring and repeatitive 1/4 way thru, i was listening to it x2 speed to finish it, if ur a real housewives fan then u may enjoy it but its mostly about him and his dog and 2 guys hes been cheating with.
"Was so excited but disappointed"
I was sooo excited for this book.
I was disappointed.
Andy was entertaining and I love his enthusiasm when he reads but I expected a lot more stories / substance.
This book seems true to its title: "Superficial".
Meaning even when he describes more than just what he did that day...has an anecdote...he seems to just breeze over it ...lightly brushing on it so much so that you sometimes almost miss it.
I feel like this was an over promise under deliver situation. Total bummer.
I was looking forward to Andy's third book. The first two had been outstanding, this one was a disappointment for me. This did not feel like a look into his life but more a lame attempt to follow up a truly great second book. I am an Andy fan but this book needed something more or less don't really know!
"Wanted to love it...but"
First let me say I took other reviewers advice and listened at 1.25. Also, I love everything Bravo so I was going in a fan and wanted to love it. But it was a little overhyped and if Andy wasn't over himself by the end - I was. It becomes whiny in places where no one can possibly be empathetic. (Sorry, not sorry Andy that your closet is palatial)?
I kept expecting tales of fun escapades or crazy housewives adventures. Doesn't happen. It's a daily diary of who he saw & where - but nothing salacious like I thought. It's good if you enjoy Bravo & Andy but it's not everything I expected. I wanted to badly to love, but came away with like.
"Gossipy and at times ..............flat"
He does what he does - so don't get to bothered when he over-acts. No, i would not listen to it again -- this is like a gossip newspaper - you just peruse and throw it away - that is the purpose of it all, and NOT a Churchill Biography....LOL
"Andy is always hysterical!!"
Andy delivers non stop fun and hijjnks. Great fun!!! Listen only if you are ready to laugh out loud!
"Love all things Andy!"
The comedy was great. I love Andy's relationship with his parents and especially his Mom. So funny!
"Can we be friends?"
Another book I loved listening to by Andy! The extra parts he put in for the listeners and hearing him read it makes the time go by fast.
"Big improvement on an already good book"
This book is a part two. It's important because the evolution of Andy Cohen's voice is evident and it would be jarring to hear how unnatural his voice is in the Andy Cohen diaries if you read it after this one. He does a great job in simply speaking in this book, I really enjoyed it and found a whole new respect for him because he does explain some of the background of these shows and gives it all a human feel.
"Wouldn't buy it"
I love Bravo, but Andy's books are so disappointing. He says that he doesn't like reading audible books, and it shows. I also don't enjoy the diary format because it feels as if there's little to no effort put in. I would love a book from Andy that shows his highs and lows in a different format, but this just feels disjointed and boring.
"Read like a bullet journal."
Very little substance, which I wasn't expecting a lot of, but I was surprised at how little there actually was. This reads almost like a journal that had daily entries written in bullet point style for each day with very little elaboration. I learned very few juicy details about the many celebs he cavorts with. I expected this to be more like his great Howard Stern appearances but unfortunately it was very lacking in any good/interesting details. He spends time on a yacht with one of the Olsen's and aside from knowing she was there, there was no other details. BORING. If you want to get to know Andy listen to his Stern interviews. Sorry Andy I wanted to love this but just couldn't. The last 5 minutes were the most insightful and substantiative of the whole book!! Also, listen on 1.5x for sure!!! Reading was well done.
"BAD Sequel. Vapid. Bad Dog Owner. Full Of Self."
Having loved the previous book this was a chore to get through. I was so disappointed that my appreciation for Andy greatly reduced. He seems so overtaken by his role that he's become aggressively vapid. Also his relationship with his dog is insanely co-dependent and I can't stand hearing how many small attacks this dog has made with him brushing it off as oh the dog was abused. Just zero heart.
