Whether you like his art style or not, George Perez has had a truly phenomenal career- it's really great to read about(!).
I especially like the behind-the-scenes info on the various situations & projects he's been involved with over the years. Things like which inkers he felt complimented his work, how he feels about his own work looking back on it, and the unique relationships he's had with various creators are detailed here. From being an assistant to Rich Buckler & Kirby swipes, to becoming famous for Teen Titans & Avengers, the many comics he's been a part of are all visited in a pretty personal interview overall. Like the John Byrne interview, this entry in the MM series is sprinkled liberally with various pieces of black & white artwork, featuring both pure pencils, and inks. It's all exclusively black & white here, unlike some other entries in the series.

George Perez is a fitting subject for this series of books -- He's been in the comics business for decades, as both artist and writer. This volume includes an extensive interview with Perez, touching on virtually everything he worked on, including the Avengers, the Teen Titans, Wonder Woman, The Justice League, Crisis on Infinite Earths, JLA/Avengers and many more. Following the interview (which itself is liberally sprinkled with art), there is a 28 page art gallery featuring lots of previously unpublished pieces.
the interview and art in this book is great. an interview with the master pencil god who created all those fantastic drawings for my enjoyment as a youth and now some what of a grown up is fantastic.
