    That's a shame . It's a great book . Very in depth lots of score examples with very detailed analysis . Fifteen chapters each dealing with a specific score . Including vertigo , Patton , the matrix , alice in wonderland , the untouchables ..... definitely a quality book

    It's a great book and Andy's a really nice and incredibly knowledgeable guy. You really can't go wrong - it's got actual scores from some contemporary scores and some classics with really inducible analysis.

    Yeah, I'd hold of on making a spontaneous purchase like this book. It is best to look for free samples to get an overall idea of what the author is trying to convey before putting down cash. Sometimes these things tend to be more dissappointing. It is always better to be cautious than to take risks.

    Agreed, but did you notice my edit? I added a link with a sample chapter, and I like what I see :)

    I dunno. $20 isn't exactly much of a risk relative to potential reward. It's a safe bet to say you can get 20$ of value from this book.
