The best, briefest history of Bollywood available. If you are interested in Bollywood and how it's changed as Indian society has, then I highly recommend this book.

Also, keep in mind that this is a coffee table book. While the pictures are lovely it is not a book that is easily read. Still, better than any Bollywood history I've ever read, online or otherwise. Great if you're a film buff.
