No. of Pages: 384

My Rating: 4 Stars
Very thoughtful autobiography by a man whose name you might not know, but whose work you’ve undoubtedly seen plenty of times.
I was very impressed with Mr. Bluth’s tale and his insight; living long doesn’t always guarantee that one looks with such reflection at their own lives, Bluth has.
I like how he goes into his own issues with self-doubt; I think reading this would help a lot of creative people suffering from the same (I’ve already planned on getting a copy for my own house, for my creative teens).
Original art makes this a must for fans and those looking for an inspiring voice in animation.
* I must note that Bluth’s strong faith has obviously shaped who he is as a person and that this does feature prominently in his book. However, I didn’t find this to be preachy or over the top, but I think it’s something to consider based on your feelings for the LDS church and/or organized religion.
