Got the book for Christmas and just finished reading it last night.

It's very informative, a step by step description of how the project was developed and produced, takes you back to the 1970's studio era. A lot of info I already knew, but some I didn't, and this is the first time you find out exactly which DP photographed certain scenes, pick-ups, and inserts, other than the obvious credited sequences. The film went massively over-budget and poor Vilmos Zsigmond was the scapegoat that Julia Phillips picked to shift the blame from herself or Spielberg.

My own niggling complaint is the poor selection of photos; I have better production photos in my Cinefex and American Cinematographer articles. I assume either the book did not want to reprint something already available or else the budget was very tight for photos, but considering that the visuals of the movie are the most impressive aspect, it's too bad.
