Much has been written about his movies, but little has been written about the man. This short biography gives you an inside look at the person behind the movies. It also will look briefly at the techniques and style behind each of his movies, and provide a bit of trivia along the way. LifeCaps is an imprint of BookCaps™ Study Guides.

This book is truly awful. If you want a well-researched, well-written biography this is not the one to get. It's filled with typos, misspellings, and terrible sentence structure. It looked like a first draft. Seriously, how did this get published? The bibliography consists of IMDB, Wikipedia, and Youtube. If you've seen the films, this book doesn't tell you anything you didn't already know. And if you haven't, I wouldn't trust this book as it lists Olivia Wilde as having played Ms. Cross in Rushmore. It was actually Olivia Williams. And Bill Murray did not play Henry in The Royal Tenenbaums. He played Margot's husband, Raleigh St. Clair. My advice, steer clear of this one.
Absolutely terrible. This book could have really been around 20 pages long. About every other page is blank. On top of that it is full of typos and incorrect facts. It briefly describes the movies and that's pretty much it. Just watch the movies. It has a few "fun facts" that are interesting but that's about it. Seriously, siting Wikipedia is breaking rule number one of journalism. I think at one time this was just a student's final for a writing class, and if that's so... F!
I wanted to get a gift for my brother-in-law, who is a big fan of Wes Anderson, but this was disappointing. Luckily I like books so I flipped through this one before giving it to him. It reads like a childrens book. Or the clifnotes to a really good book. There was lots of space and the print is really big. It did not feel well put together. I bought the other one "The Wes Anderson Collection in Hardcover" and it is 100 times better. Full color photos. Actual writing. Perfect as a gift.
