I had a chance to take a class that the author of this book taught and it was a great class.
First I would like to say that this book is easy to read and understand because the reader is not overwhelmed with terms from music. Very interesting for people that like music and even better for people that enjoy films. Personally speaking I never really thought about music and scores in films before this book and now I feel that music is very important in film.
So get this book because it is easy and supplies examples of films that changed, for the better, the way films are heard and watched.

Easy to read, wonderful film selections. Accessible analysis for non-musical people. This book is one of a kind!

Thoughtfully laid out. HIghly informative. Can be used as textbook or coffee table book that you can pick up and read a little or look up information. Covers music and film from beginning to end.

I was fortunate enough to have had Mr. Hickman as my instructor. This book is great and helped me understand film music even though I don't have a music background. Definitely recommend it!

This is the only book available on this subject, and fortunately it's very good. If you ever have to take a class with the author, don't hesitate to purchase a copy to keep. Not available as an ebook!

Shipped out the same day and got to my school really fast. I highly recommend them if you need your text books last minute like I did.

When I received the book, the pages were falling apart. Taped a few pages back and got charged for a "damaged book"

I purchased this on ebay first, at least two months in advance, and have yet to receive it. Bought This book here and it came in a snap.

Needless to say, I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
