Format: Paperback
I have to admit, that I didn't really know what to expect from this book.

The description doesn't really convey how this book is Broomfield "in his own words" whilst being written by someone else.

To clarify, the book is written by Jason Wood based on hours of what must have been quite thrilling interviews with Broomfield. These interviews whilst edited are published in a question & answer way, as opposed to the author telling the story and including the occasional quote.

This book gives you a great insight into the production process of Broomfield's work, and acts as a footnote for his films, giving the reader a glimpse into the all of the things that were going on behind-the-scenes.

I would highly recommend this book to any aspiring filmmaker, or anyone with even so much as a passing interest in documentary films.

Format: Paperback
Having grown up on Michael Moore and the likes of Morgan Spurlock, to discover Nick Broomfield is to see the world as it is, rather than how someone wants us to see it. Without being sycophantic Nick Broomfield is the greatest independent documentary filmmaker of a generation, whatever the topic (grunge rocker death, serial killer to white suprecamist and Hollywood Madam, US penal system and Maggie T) he can weave a documentary that gives you an experience of real life. The fact you are looking at this means you are interested, think no more BUY IT NOW, I have a copy signed by Nick and the author and it is in my top 10 books (of over a thousand).

Format: Paperback
Having just read the new Louis Theroux book that I got for Christmas, I thought I would move onto this (also a chrissie present - I don't know why my wife suddenly thought I was a big documentary fan), but I was not holding out much hope of it being better, as I have seen some of Broomfield's earlier stuff and although I liked it, the very irritating Volkswagen adverts had put me off him and his appearances in his docs (even though he is less intrusive than Michael Moore, who the world and his dog seem to like).
How wrong was I? Very it seems, as he comes over in this book as a very personable, witty and pretty down to earth chap. Not as cute a Louis, but perhaps more accessible to a miner's son like me.
I'm so impressed by the book, I have ordered the first volume of his DVD collection so I can catch up with his post-Volkswagen work. That and the fact that I hate what Thatcher did to the moral framework of this country and want to see Broomfield's Maggie doc.
Highly recommended if you have any interest in documentary and the process of doc making. Could perhaps be a bit more in-depth, but he has had a pretty extensive career, so I guess the publishers didn't want a table-breaking volume.
