Spielberg: the man, the movies, the mythologyUser Review - Book Verdict
Spielberg often ranks at or near the top of Hollywood's power list. The world's most successful director, he also heads his own production company and recently helped form the potential entertainment conglomerate DreamWorks SKG. This book traces Spielberg's career from apprenticeship days to the triumph of Schindler's List. Unfortunately, the author seems less interested in Spielberg's work than in speculation, gossip, and trivia regarding Spielberg's failed first marriage to actress Amy Irving and his second marriage to actress Kate Capshaw. The book has too many sneering asides on critics and performers, doesn't give enough detail on individual films, and quotes Look magazine in 1979 (it ceased publication years earlier). A truly outstanding book on the director has yet to be written, but libraries should consider Douglas Brode's The Films of Steven Spielberg (Carol Pub. Group, 1994), a good introduction to basic themes in his work. This superficial book is not a necessary purchase.--Stephen Rees, Levittown Regional Lib., Pa.
