A book you find in remainder bookstore, which are sadly becoming a rarity. Especially before a vacation, one could find great little books like this for $4.99. If you enjoy the era of "real men" in movies (unlike the wimpy dreck of today, Pitt, Cruise and DeCaprio I'm referring to) then this is your gateway. Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin, The Duke, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, these are the real men of motion pictures. A breezy yet masculine presentation.
