Good for the price
This is a great companion for those of us eagerly anticipating the film, with a lot of great behind the scenes material.
But the quality of the text clearly was an afterthought when putting this together, so it's good that it is free. Just because it's an eBook (iBook?) doesn't mean it doesn't need an editor. Typos are one thing (and there are plenty), but the writer left in notes ("move to xxx section?" "???" etc.) that really should have been caught at some point before publishing.
The visuals and videos and insights do their job as a wonderful ad for the movie that makes me incredibly excited to see the finished product. I just hope that the film team put more care into their work than the creators of this book.
Only for iPad? :(
While this seems like an amazing behind-the-scenes look at the incredible movie, it's only able to be read on an iPad.....I wish they could change it so that it's compatible with any iOS device with iBooks!
Makes me excited to see the film. Can't wait!
