I have read the book and saw the trailers for the movie. However I thought I would read this book before watching the movie. Sort of like watching the DVD extras, it enhances the movie to know what they are trying to accomplish.
Well I was surprised to see that this book can hold its own. It is more than a just how-to change a book into a movie. And the added drawings and pictures are worth the purchase. I do not want to go too much into detail as that is why you want the book. However we get a mini biography of Martin Scorese, a synopsis of the story, and a lot about what 3D should and should not be.
Just a side not it feels, looks, and smells like a real book.
