I do A-level film studies and part of my chosen project was to do the work of Miyazaki. Seeing this book i thought i would buy it for its value; However this book has so much detail and was essential too me. fantastic for research and/or you are a fan of Miyazkai films.

(do note it does not contain Spirited Away, Howl's moving castle or Ponyo)

Let me take a few moments to tell you the real facts about this book.
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.
