With a foreword by Spielberg himself!   From the irresistible fantasy of E.T. to the gritty realism of Saving Private Ryan , the films of Steven Spielberg have captured the imagination of the world. Renowned critic Richard Schickel now gives us the definitive illustrated monograph on this Oscar#65533;-winning Hollywood icon, whose long and glittering career few directors have equaled.   Spielberg is one of the most influential and inspirational minds in cinema, and Schickel provides perceptive analysis of nearly 40 years' worth of work, with illuminating film-by-film commentary on such masterpieces as the underwater thriller, Jaws ; the high-speed adventures of Indiana Jones; the harrowing Schindler's List ; sci-fi classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind ; and the recent releases Tintin and War Horse . The book culminates with the long-awaited Lincoln and features over 250 dynamic images, plus revealing behind-the-scenes photos from DreamWorks's archives.

If you love movies, especially Spielberg's, this book is for you. This book has a little biography on Spielberg before it dives into his movies. The book is divided into chapters, each chapter being one of his movies. This is great because it is recent. Although it doesn't contain Lincoln, it has all of his movies up until then. Each chapter has an overview of the movie and a little of the behind-the-scenes. This is a great read for people who love Spielberg's movies or are just starting to watch his movies!
