Now in Paperback! Straight from the Horse's Mouth provides a fascinating, first-hand account of a unique filmmaker, who began his career as assistant cameraman on Hitchcock's first talkie, Blackmail, and went on to direct Maggie Smith, Judy Garland, Walter Matthau, and many other prominent performers. The book includes tales of the on-and-off-the-set antics of comedian George Formby, and original accounts of his experiences working with Noel Coward and David Lean. This is not simply an autobiography, but rather a history of British cinema from the 1920s through the 1960s, and Hollywood cinema from the 1960s through the present.

      Is that a River Song reference?

    Lee,Thanks for sharing this and I do agree. One can quipple with some of the assumptions on class size, lifetime value, etc., but the basic point is clear. eBooks will not be a large cost savings vs. texts (especailly at $14.95) overall and once you add in the device cost and acquisition it is much more expensive.
