Lumet provides a wealth of information for aspiring filmmakers and veterans alike. Every film student should read this book to learn the ins and outs of the process. I've been making films for 30 years and I learned a few new tricks too.

Anyone who wants to know the nitty-gritty of how movies are made by someone who's been there, done that, this is THE book. A fascinating, well written primer on the art and science of how those shadows we see on a screen are actally put together. People with even a casual interest in the subject will find this book well worth reading. A great combination of entertainment and information.
