Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama’s Greatest Moments is an enhanced electronic book chronicling Soaps' Greatest Moments over the past 75 years as voted on by popular, award-winning actors, writers and producers, as well as other television industry professionals and of course, the fans. The book features exclusive interviews with the greatest scenes’ most prominent players; links to classic video clips; and updates on “Where Are They Now?”

As an enhanced electronic book, Soap Opera 451 is the first of its kind both technically and editorially where you can actually click a link and view the soap opera scene being discussed, as well as visit the contributors’ own websites to learn more about them and their current projects (note: availability will wary depending on your viewing device). While many books have been written about the soap opera world, this is the first to include multiple shows, highlight specific scenes, interview key players involved in the most popular, and be crowd-sourced - giving fans a say in what is included. These “greatest” moments were chosen BY fans and soap professionals (journalists, producers, writers), and presented in a way never before available.
