    1. Informative!This is a lot information, and not all of it is exclusive to Godzilla. This covers every Kaiju film made from 1954-1980. All of the greats are here, Godzilla, Gamera, Ghidorah and more. The greats and the unknown. Only one thing would make it better, better editing and pictures.

    2. This is a very entertaining and informative book that totally immerses you in the world of kaiju films, and Japanese SPFX film history.

    3. Essential referenceA well written reference looking at Japanese monster movies with realistic affection. Good to read for enjoyment or as a reference tool
