    Too much summary, not enough analysis. This is the sort of book that was great before the days of video, internet, etc. Now it looks impressive but the modicum of original material interview (analysis of the films and commentary by Corman) makes it a bit of a disappointment. Even so, I enjoyed reading it and noticed only minor errors, such as adding or removing "the" on the fronts of titles of films in ways that don't match the on-screen title.
