Yeah, so my title is somewhat cheesy, but at least it connected with one of his movies. I'm sure that everyone has heard of the popular "Kevin Bacon Game" by now, so this book would be the perfect compliment to that game.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for anything more, you won't find it in this book. It is nothing more than a list of characters linked to Kevin Bacon. However, I must admit that I was impressed by the amount of effort and research that had to go into making this book. But, then I wonder why.
Setting that aside, I accept it for what it is worth. It is entertaining, and some of the photographs are quite good. I particularly enjoyed the filmography section at the beginning of the book, but other than that, this book is simply a novelty item. Take it from me, Chad Spivak, who attended a Miami Dolphins' football game with Dan Marino, who was in "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective" with Sean Young, who was in "Fatal Instinct" with Bob Uecker, who was in "Major League" with Charlie Sheen, who was in "Young Guns" with Kiefer Sutherland, who was in "Flatliners" with Kevin Bacon!

When I heard about the game, I realized that I had in fact seen most of Kevin Bacon's movies. It is so much fun connecting other actors to him. Not only do you have to be a Bacon fan, but a fan of all movies new and old. My friends and I can sit around all night trying to stump each other. I have become the king of our Bacon "study group". This book has also inspired me to begin my own Kevin Bacon movie collection. I'm about half-way there. Long live Bacon.

This book is a companion piece to the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game. I've played the game a few times, but I never actually knew there was a real 'board game' game of the game until recently. I figured that the book might help me learn a bit more about that wonderful actor, Kevin Bacon, and give me an edge over my croonies in crime the next time we play the game. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot here. The book is quite short and basically consists of a bunch of "six degrees or less" lists. The introduction by Kevin Bacon himself is interesting to read and so is the history of the game. The book also has a Kevin Bacon filmography that is rather informative. However, the book needs an update because Bacon's been in several films since 1997. This book is great for any fan of Bacon, any serious film buff, and anyone who likes to play the game. If you don't fall into one of those categories, don't waste your money.

This game can be fun for people really into movies and the "creators" of the game have given us a pretty good companion book for people to check themselves. However, I found one very glaring mistake in the book. In the section about the Baldwins they claim that you can link Billy Baldwin to Kevin Pollak in The Usual Suspects and then to Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men. Unfortunately, Billy Baldwin wasn't in The Usual Suspects. His brother Stephen was in The Usual Suspects. I'm a little surprised that no one has written about this in a review yet. For a couple of guys you claim to know a lot about Kevin Bacon, they sure screwed that one up. Other than that, this book is fun.

What a fun book! One connection that the authors missed: Jurassic Park to Tremors: (or visa versa). The little girl who was in Tremors bouncing on the pogo stick (while the giant worms were sensing her vibratioins and our HERO Kevin Bacon was enroute to rescue her), was the same kid in Jurassic Park who was chased by dinos with her kid brother, who also starred Jeff Goldblum, who was in The Fly with Gina Davis by whom either of these can easily be linked up with Kevin Bacon again.
Anyway, fun book. Buy two so you can play with a friend.

I love Kevin Bacon and so I picked up this book which I loved as much as him!!! My friends and I love to just sit there and play the game but there were people we couldn't connect to him. It would bother us a lot then we got this book and it solved several of the big ones we were stumped on.I'd like to say thanks to the creators, publishers, and everyone else who contributed to the book in some way!!! I will keep it forever!!!
