It's brilliant. It tells you so, so much about Miyazaki's life, influences, films and career. You really get inside this amazing director's head with this book, it's THAT insightful.
Why am I so enthused?
I used this book as the primary research material for an A-level Film Studies authorship coursework project, that I chose to do on Miyazaki. This book... I can't really stress enough how helpful it was. I found myself thumbing through it time after time, and being constantly impressed by the amount and depth of information it contains. You can tell very quickly that a lot of work and love has been put into this book- my favourite parts were the commentaries on each of Miyazaki's films. They were well-researched, thought-provoking and very interesting. I have to say, they gave me a whole new appreciation to my already raging enthusiasm for Miyazaki's works.
All that's left to say is: get this book. You really can't go wrong.
