    1. Some interesting insights into the making of Kevin Smith's first few movies, although on occasion the author lets his own fanboy-ism get the better of him.

    2. Too many info. A little snobbish at some very small sections but whatevs. It stops with "Jersey Girl" being in production but the enormous amount of info with the "Clerks II" DVD makes up for that.
