This is a wonderful collection of interviews and remarks by Jean Renoir, one of my favorite filmmakers.
He is quite lucid about his films and how he made them. You get the sense that he was very easy to work with; actors loved him.
The book is easy to read and will make you want to see his films all over again , or, if you are really lucky, to see then for the first time. A good one to start with is Grand Illusion. Have fun!
