This book is very informative, as well as interesting. It covers a lot of different animated works, from totally obscure ones like a Czech adaption of the works of Jules Verne, to top-grossing blockbusters, like Avatar and WALL-E. Most, if not all, different types of animation, be it computer-generated, cel-animated, stop-motion etc., are covered. All reviews are pretty much spot on when it comes to why the movie was granted admission among the top 100, and the author also often cross-references between different films, adding to the book's historical perspective.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the number of Japanese animated films, especially "Nigh on the Galactic Railroad" and "Mind Game", both of which are my own personal favorites, despite the fact that none of them have received Western releases. The book includes a well-written article in the beginning which briefly covers the history of the animated medium, as well as some anecdotes discussing what is animation and what isn't. It also has several great images complementing most of the films, and even some which take up two whole pages by themselves.

All in all, I'm really glad I bought this book, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning of and discovering the great wonders which the animated medium has to offer.

This is an excellent book full of informative reviews of well known and less well known animated movies, all with well argued reasons for their inclusion. Full of fascinating insights from a very knowledgable author. Recommended :)
