"Essential reading for Dragon Ball fans looking to expand their knowledge and broaden their horizons. If you are a Dragon Ball fan and want to learn more about the series and become a savant when it comes to Dragon Ball ... get this book in your collection! ... You'll learn so much from each chapter that you'll want to come back for more." - Geekdom101, Dragon Ball YouTuber

"Dragon Ball Culture is a must read. It's beyond interesting, it's inspiring. After reading this book, you'll never look at Dragon Ball the same way again!" -

"Dragon Ball Culture is an AMAZING resource. I guarantee you will learn a lot. You'll not only get your deepest Dragon Ball questions answered, you'll also get answers to questions you never thought to ask!" -- Mistare Fusion, Dragon Ball YouTuber

"There's so much info about Toriyama's personal life that I didn't know--really, thousands of things--that I could put up video after video talking about it." - Yuluga Reyens, Spanish Dragon Ball YouTuber

"This book series is the bible to any true fan of Dragon Ball." - Reader Review

"For Dragon Ball fans who think they know everything there is to know. Derek provides information sourced from official channels, so it works as a good reference for canonical or official data on the series. It's handy in case you want to get into another debate on the Internet and need facts to back up your statement." -

"Derek Padula's brilliant Dragon Ball Culture books are well-researched and written in a formal but still accessible manner, providing insight on the culture, themes, and history that influenced the story and world of Dragon Ball. Mr. Padula's books are excellent pieces for any Dragon Ball fan looking to dig deeper into the essence of the franchise, and I highly recommend them." -

"Derek Padula, who is responsible for collecting and recording all the information [in these books], has written ... an exhaustive analysis of more than 2,000 pages divided into 7 volumes on the entire history of the famous manga and anime of Akira Toriyama." -

"The world's most epic analysis of the world's most epic anime and manga. Within this treasure chest of a book is a rich esoteric history of everything that went into the show. It paints a picture of how amazing Dragon Ball truly is." - Reader Review

"If you are a staunch Dragon Ball fan, or just a curious fan of this story, then this book is indispensable for you. A great work of the author. I look forward to the following volumes." - Reader Review
