I bought the Kindle version and never had any trouble with it (I find it easier to have academic writings in electronic version so that I can quickly search for certain terms). If you want to learn more about film history and theory centered on special effects, this is the book for you!
"The master goes beyond the boundless land, and nothing, neither men nor demons nor gods, nothing in all creation can hold him. Monkey is magic, a god, an immortal, but he is less than the Buddha in you."
