"In this very personal book [Scorsese] explains just what drives him."-The Daily Express

"Revealing and personal... A book that is part autobiography, part film production 101. Gripping, beautifully detailed and fascinating throughout, it's a monograph equivalent of a Scorsese film itself."-Dazed and Confused

"Scorsese's [...] dedicated personal vision is brought to life via a series of interview with author Michael Henry Wilson [...] alongside a welter of hand-drawn storyboards, annotated scripts, production notes and on-set photography... Also reads as a veritable of who's-who of cinema."-Daily Telegraph

"Riveting... Packs a one-two punch... Movie geeks will love this book."

"One of Hollywood's greatest filmmakers discusses not only his own films but also the ones that have inspired him in this impressive collection."-Entertainment Weekly

"The definitive illustrated volume on one of cinema's all-time greats, it's a must for any film buff."-Urban Daddy
