I should have taken the advice of the store and sat down and read a couple of pages. I thought it would be filled with anecdotes about celebrities. It just wasn't what I thought it would be. My fault. I'm sure its a wonderful book but, not my cup of tea.

We got this for a high school aged nephew who already makes short videos and special effects for his own and others' performances, and I ended up reading it cover to cover before we gave it to him. It is full of really interesting, very unusual and hilarious descriptions of the terms used on a movie set. Tony Bill is a great writer and has managed to make what is essentially a "dictionary" into a great read.
