I admit it - I went through a HUGE James Dean phase in college. One summer, I read this book and just drooled over all of the photos of him making his movies, mainly Rebel Without a Cause. It really captured the time and made you feel like you were right in 1954, feeling all of that creative energy with all of those people he worked with. I highly recommend this book. It lives up to my remembered reveries.
