2.0 out of 5 stars
A rough first draft at best, 20 Feb. 2013
I had to abandon reading the book, despite how interesting the story behind the John Carter film is. This is because the test is littered with spelling and grammar errors and in many places whole words or even parts of sentences are missing, making it impossible to read. If you could get past that, there are many sections where it appears that the author is only listing ideas to be fleshed out and edited later - the arguments aren't consistent or even coherent in places. Given a half decent rewrite and edit, this book could probably be made to be very good - certainly the subject matter is interesting enough.
Overall, I was very disappointed with this book but if you can persevere and get past all the glaring errors, there is a decent amount of information available.
