Read in August, 2009
I'll admit to a little bias: I'm a big Bruce Campbell fan. I'm also a fan of Sam Raimi [director and longtime friend of Campbell:], so reading behind-the-scenes tales of their early careers was a special treat for me.
While no great work of literature, this autobiography did exactly what I wanted it to: I felt like I got a glimpse into what these men are really like, I learned more about moviemaking in general and making EVIL DEAD in particular, and I got to see plenty of snapshots taken throughout the years. This book balances perfectly structure and chronology with personal anecdotes and funny stories, and it focuses on the work.
I'd love to see another update to this book at some point, post-BURN NOTICE. :)
