Miluju Titanic a celého Jamese Camerona a toto je vážně zajímavá a skvělá kniha. Pokud se o Jamesi chcete dozvědět něco nového, určitě si ji přečtěte! Nejvíc mě bavily pasáže o Terminátorovi (na filmy jsem se koukla, když jsem knížku četla, úplně mě na ně nalákala :) ) a o Titanicu :-)

There is no mistaken that James Cameron has achieved so much because he has put so much into reaching his dreams, his goals. This book is tr
