I bought this book based on what I had seen from this artist both on the web and in his book "Escape." What I found was that the art in this book is from early in the artist's career before he had fully developed his artistic chops. While there are a few pieces that are excellent and on par with his later work, the majority of the work featured in this book quite simply does not compare to the artist's work with which I was familiar. However, if you like to see how the artist has grown and improved as well as study how his style has developed, then it is worth having this book. Bottom line... I was a little disapointed but still glad I bought it. Recommeded for art history purposes, not based on overall content.
