Thanks for the link! Hopefully the book will go to someone who will enjoy it more than I did!

I am an Film, Video, and Media Studies Major here at Western Michigan University and I love reading books about movies. Also Sci-Fi movies are my favorite so I would most definitely read this book and provide a review for you.

Female Engineering Professor has successfully claimed the book. We'll look forward to the review.

the book was swag at the 2008 NC Science Bloggers conference. I found it interesting but very uneven. I'm looking forward to reading what others think
