If you are looking for a funny book, or a biography of Woody Allen, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a book that analyzes Allen's movies and his thinking behind each movie, this is an excellent book. It's almost like a textbook about the craft of movie making. The book is literally a 400 page interview with Allen, talking about each of the many movies he has made. It's interesting, but in an academic way.
