OK, laugh if you must. But this may be the best book I've read so far on the subject of American adult movies. (At least up until 1997-98 when this book was published, anyway - it's past time for a "Part Two".) I'm not a huge fan of "graphic novels," much less Non-Fiction(!), but for sheer sweep and scope, inclusion of concise content, informed viewpoints, and balanced judgement, this is THE history in the field. Other efforts to document this subject so far have been either dry and boring, axe-grinding editorials, or completely insane. (i.e. - Luke Ford) There is simply nothing better out there that has ever been printed than this "Cartoon History."

This short-ish paperback is *filled* with information about the players (Nina Hartley, Savannah, etc.) and the films/videos. (Cafe Flesh, Green Door, and so on.) Unfortunately, the cartoon format makes it difficult for the authors to go into anything in much depth, but this same limitation makes the book brisk and entertaining to read. If you have any interest in the "Golden Age", American adult films, and the origins of what has come to be called "The Industry", this book is THE one to read.

I recommend it highly.
