'Brimming with insight and packed with a dropship's worth of interviews, Ian Nathan's James Cameron: A Retrospective is a valuable look into the man behind the myth. Cameron's persistence, technical wizardry, and reverence for the art of filmmaking shine off the page. Essential reading for fans of film history; REQUIRED reading for fans of Aliens.' * Perfect Organism Podcast * 'James Cameron: A Retrospective is a super-interesting book, lots of information and pictures, and I love the way Ian Nathan tells the story.' * Luis Nostromo, Alien Museum, Barcelona *
