Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Never have I been more drawn-in (no pun intended) to an autobiography more than this one. The Man lives up to his legend. I've always been purely fascinated by his style, his sarcastic humor, his satire. Even from a very young age, if I saw his name anywhere in the credits, my eyes were glued to the screen. Not surprisingly, I purchased and finished this read the same day. I couldn't put it down.
If you're a fan of his work, of comedy, of classic animation, READ THIS BOOK. An art professor would do very well to recommend this read to any of his students. And for those of you, like me, who just purely appreciate his art, it's a peek at the man behind the icons we love. These cartoons are him and his teams' inside jokes and we are all in on it now. It's an amazing read. Don't skip it.
I will make mine the words of some other critics: many of the things on this book are not factual. not the truth as some would say. but it does not need to be. It's the world view of a man who entertained the world through rabbit, ducks and road runners. the view of a man who shaped entires generations with his cartoons. a man who made worlds of make-believe, its only fitting that his world view would be of make-believe also.
This book is a must-have for fans of not just Warner Bros. animation, but animation period. This book is an autobiography written by Chuck Jones, one of the most popular animators of all time. The book records his early childhood to his later years around he wrote this book. He reveals what happened during the Golden Age of Animation at Warner Bros. and includes a great deal of his own humor.
The book was in good condition with some of the sentences are highlighted, which might mean it was a study book. Overall this book is great and fans of classic animation should purchase it.
