This book came into my life at the right time - I have a lot of family birthdays coming up, and this book makes a perfect gift! I had forgotten about so many of the 100 recommended movies and ordered 3 of them to watch right away. The 10 essential classic films are perfect for those of us starting a movie library at home. I also really like the the sections titled "what to watch next" because they suggest similar movies. I don't necessarily agree with all of the author's recommendations, but I do hope that she publishes a sequel with movies that are post 1960 so she can include How to Murder Your Wife (1965) and Indochine (1992). This book is a great reference to keep. I won an advance readers edition on Goodreads.
