I found this book in a free box in front of my house, but i would have paid lots for it if i came across it in a store. It was quite water-damaged, which is sort of a shame because not only is it full of wise and interesting words but it's really well-designed and appointed with numerous photos and frame grabs from the numerous incredible films that Murch has worked on, illustrating the concepts being talked about.

Basically, anyone who makes films, especially editors, should read this book. It's just so brilliant. Sound editors too, as well as audio artists, would love this book.

Murch is just a genius, and he's able to articulate his genius very lucidly as well.
