This book delivers what it advertises. It serves as a great history of film and is presented by a very intelligent lecturer who offers great insight into each film as well as show how it contributes to each period of film. However, the presentation has one fatal flaw: the lecturer continuously hard-swallows right into the microphone. This becomes so distracting, that it is hard to pay attention to the lectures after a while. Perhaps hire a professional voice man next time, or a least some recording etiquette training for the lecturer.
