Based on more than a half dozen interviews with the director himself, this unauthorized biography recounts Spielberg's childhood, education, career, philanthropic and charitable endeavors, and his extremely private personal life. This updated edition explores Spielberg's latest filmmaking efforts, from Schindler's List to Men in Black 2.
Author's correction of the Library Journal review of Spielberg: The Man, the Movies, the Mythology by Frank Sanello (me).
The Library Journal review erroneously says of my Spielberg bio:
The book has too many sneering asides on critics and performers, doesn't give enough detail on individual films, and quotes Look magazine in 1979 (it ceased publication years earlier).
The above statement about Look ceasing publication years before I quoted in my Spielberg bio the revived Look magazine in 1979 is inaccurate. According to Wikipedia,
Hachette Filipacchi Médias brought back Look, The Picture Newsmagazine in February 1979 as a bi-weekly in a slightly smaller size. It lasted only a year.
Please correct the Library Journal Review's inaccurate criticism. Did you know that Library Journal reviews are written by non-professional book critics, usually people whose only qualification is being a voracious reader.
In the past, before I became the author of 20+ books sold on Amazon, I reviewed books for the Los Angeles Daily News and the Chicago Tribune as a freelance journalist.
This is not the first time an amateur Library Journal reviewer panned one of my books citing information that was factually correct. The reviewer's claim that Look magazine went out of business before the quote I attributed to the resurrected Look is just the most egregious error of many by the Library Journal. Publishers Weekly, which employs professional book critics, gave my Spielberg bio a glowing review!
