4.0 out of 5 stars no surprises, 16 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
tools are fine for the job- and for the price i think its an OK set.
i did also need a wrench no.14 -Depending on your bike to remove the crankset ( mine was a square taper MTB)
the chain tool is a bit flimsy, but i think most of those are..

5.0 out of 5 stars well researched - great reproductions, 13 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
really like this book -
I am a fan of the Bay Area painters and have a couple of others on Diebenkorn and the Bay Area. This book really gives a good feel for Bishoffs life and work. The reproductions are excellent and all the key works are there -Im not a big fan of his later work, but it is an interesting turn-to his career and the book i guess, especially when you compare him to Diebenkorn who also slipped back into abstraction in his later years but in a much more 'modern' sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good primer, 9 Jan 2009
this is a good read, well informed and educated accouts of this generation of filmakers.
It is also short book - more a summary of each of the filmakers careers (so far) mentioned in the synopsis than an expose on the subject, is there a subject?
In the same way Peter Biskind's Easy Riders Raging Bulls did for the 70s film and that generation, I think there is room for a book to do the same for this 'American New Wave' generation that really delves into the psychology of the age but this is not quite it and I haven't come accross one yet..

3.0 out of 5 stars drugs hookers, more drugs, more hookers.., 8 Jan 2009
Took a few pages to get the idea....
...drugs hookers, more drugs, more hookers, then again after 2 or 3 chapters of more coke & hookers. I did enjoy it in parts as there is lots of juicy gossip about Stars and big shots in the Industry, but precious little about filmaking..after a while it read like Jackie Collins without the explicit sex... It does really give you a good idea about what it was like involved in the hollywood excesses of the 80s.
From a film buff point of view it made me want to re- watch all the 80's 'classics' top-gun, flashdance, to re-live all the cheese, as I was too young to notice how bad the lines were back then..
the gossip is indeed facinating and the excesses are Roman in proportion.
