"Who in the world is lucky enough to have a "grand dream," then to enter it, embrace it, and have it become part of their life? Michael Uslan is just such a blessed person. His name and persona is forever linked to the Batman. Isn't that the coolest damn thing you ever heard?"-Neal Adams, Creator's Advocate and artist and writer of Batman, X-Men, Crazyman, and Blood

A GREAT READ.

I don't really have a criticism, as it's a very enjoyable read, but I do wish he had gone into a little more detail about the making of the first Batman movie, and his part in bringing Batman Begins along, too. But I suppose that would almost be another book.
This is an extremely high quality book; the dust jacket is beautiful, the pages are highest-quality paper of varied colors, and the reproductions of the classic Batman comic cover art is vivid. One of my favorite parts is the full- page facsimile of his rejection letters from the movie studios.
At times Uslan is a bit self-indulgent, but the book is titled "The Boy Who Loved Batman" and so it is clearly about himself. But that never dulls my appreciation for his journey. One of the most touching parts to me is when he expresses how excited he was to speak to the U.S. Corps of Cadets at West Point. He shows his humanity- with all that he accomplished as a movie producer; he relates that his most memorable event was speaking to the young cadets.
