this book is great. information galore. it's good written and a joy to read even for me a non native speaker from germany. a bit dated because it is from 1996, but therefore it covers mostly 80's to mid 90's the so called golden age of hongkong cinema. earlier cinema is of course in too and the introduction goes back to the roots of the battling babes dated in the ching dynasty and its peking opera. yes, i learned a lot.
the last chapter is about cat III movies with some adult stuff, so this book is not for kids. if you are addicted to the genre get the book. if not you still will have fun. if you can't read watch the pictures. there are lots of it.
