5.0 out of 5 stars The single best book about Tarantino, March 27, 2003
This review is from: Quentin Tarantino: Man and His Movies, The (Paperback)
This book is a must-read for every true Tarantino fan.
Jamie Bernard's book is simply amazing. It covers Tarantino's life from childhood till about 1996. The book is well-written, and goes deep into detail and uncovers Tarantino's life as hyperactive kid, movie theater regular, fatherless child and genius moviemaker. This is the single best book ever written about Quentin Tarantino. No other book delivers such great information, biographical facts and stories about the making of his early movies and involvements in projects. If you want to read a good book about Tarantino, get this one first. It's the best!
trust me on this...

4.0 out of 5 stars A great scoop on Tarantino's beginnings, January 10, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Quentin Tarantino: Man and His Movies, The (Paperback)
I just finished reading this book, and it is a fine work of reporting. It interviews people from both sides of the Tarantino debate (those who love him and those who hate him), and allows you to draw your own conclusions from all the statements. It covers Tarantino's life from his birth up to the moment when he made Four Rooms.
Too bad this book is out of print. I hope there will be a reissue in the future, probably covering the latest works of Tarantino.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, January 15, 2014

This review is from: Quentin Tarantino: Man and His Movies, The (Paperback)
Very inspiring and interesting perspective on Tarantino. My oldest son is an aspiring writer and movie buff especially in the genre Tarantino focuses on. Well written and gives a better understanding of the man and his background which has made him the genius he is today.

This review is from: Quentin Tarantino: Man and His Movies, The (Paperback)
When Tarantino blew up in the early 90's, there were slews of quickie books written to cash in on his enormous popularity. This is not one of them. Jami Bernard has done one of the most thorough and detailed biographies ever done on a celebrity. She misses nothing. The only problem this book has is the same problem almost all Q.T books have- they were all written 2 to 3 years into his career, so there is no recent information. This is one book I'd love to see updated and re-released.It is a richly detailed and fair account of Tarantino's life and career up until 1995.

sorry for the wrong usage of the rating system before, I am rather new to this.
Now the rating has been updated with regards to the book itself. I have enjoyed it, I like the way it is structured and that it does give lots of information.
