 About the Book 

I definitely give this 5 stars, but then my opinion is a bit biased. Ridley Scott is in the #1 spot on my favorite directors list. Even if that werent the case, this would get high markings.The author explains that hes interviewed the director and reviewed his movies over the past several years, and it shows big time with all of the in depth information on the director.Covering his career since the very beginning, you get a first hand look into the path he followed that lead to Ridley becoming a successful director. The book gives plenty of behind the scenes details covering things like obstacles faced, his collaboration with various actors, and what people consider his breakthrough movies that made him famous in the industry. It is an older book, so the information only covers his career up to a certain point, but this is a must read for any Ridley Scott fan.
