Steve Neale's book is one of those books I bought because I got fed up of library fines. It is a book that is good to have on your shelf for reference.

HASH(0x8bce3cf0) out of 5 stars Superb overview of Hollywood film genres 13 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Steve Neale's book offers an excellent, theoretically well-informed, up-to-date and very readable overview of Hollywood film genres. Those who are new to the study of film genre will find this a great one-volume introduction to the subject, and experts will particularly welcome his discussion of definitions of genre (and the critical problems those definitions raise). It provides an ideal balance of concrete example and abstract theory and is to my mind currently the best book on this topic. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8bce6de0) out of 5 stars Okay But Not Great 28 July 2011
By FilmDoctor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book okay but not great. Clearly, the scholarship on film genre has gone downhill since Stuart M. Kaminsky's seminal work, AMERICAN FILM GENRES. One problem I found is that the book got lost in the weeds of contemporary scholarship that's been infected by obtuse structuralist and post-structuralist studies/theories and radical Marxist, feminist theory, which have corrupted a once bright field,

You can find better things on the Internet, or by reading Kaminsky, Jim Kitses' book on the western, HORIZONS WEST, and older scholars like John Cawelti.
