My favorite part-a later chapter dealing with sequels that never happened. If you hated Jaws 2, go to a used book store and try to dig up the novelization by Hank Searle, it was based on an early screenplay draft and makes a whole lot more sense than the movie (SPOILER ALERT-the shark is female and pregnant with the munchies, which explains quite a bit, even a small line in the movie would have cleared this up). Plus details on Jaws 4,People 0- a spoof that never happened; how about real sharks and fake people?
Again, if you loved this film and want background on it's making, I very highly reccomend this book.
It's an interesting read, the author seems to have written his chapters out individually but then not paid much attention to how they were assembled. The first section, on the first film, seems to jump from production guy to actor to cinematographer, which can be a little confusing.
There are also a few errors in the book, a couple of typos and a couple of rather glaring errors about the first film. The author presents a timeline of "Jaws" but doesn't get a couple of the events in their proper order, and Meadows' character is named 'Harry' as it is in the book, but in the film, his name was Ben. Probably minor points, but...
In short, any book about the greatest movie of all time is quite welcome. I wish the publishing media paid as much attention to Jaws' legacy and longstanding popularity as it does some of the other garbage films out since then. (for example, every time a Bond movie is released..do we really need another Bond book?)
