Loved this book! So far, this is my favorite by Ray Morton. The detail was so great it felt like I was actually on set during the filming. I'm a huge fan of the film, and this well-crafted behind the scenes narrative completes the experience for me. A must-have for the true fan of the film!

This is a fascinating book which tells the Close Encounters story from Hollywood's first UFO portrayals to this film's conception and creation. The writer gives great behind-the-scenes details and reader friendly descriptions of the technical aspects. I didn't know what a 'motor-driven worm gear' was before I read the book but I was still able to get a good understanding of the techniques used and now feel a little more savvy about film making. Overall, a well researched and nicely written piece to be enjoyed by anyone who liked the movie.

One can tell that Mr. Morton is not just a wonderful writer, but an great fan of Mr. Spielberg and 'Close Encounters.' He delves into the movie so completely that you almost feel you were there when the movie was being made. This is not just a great book for Spielberg fans, but should be a must read for all film students out there.
