Industry Reviews

"The Jaws Log is like a little movie director bible. Whenever I'm having a bad day at work, I got back and read a chapter...and thank the Lord I'm not shooting on the ocean." -- -Bryan Singer, Director, The Usual Suspects, X-Men "Carl Gottlieb's work is as entertaining as the movie it is about. In fact, you have not had the full Jaws experience until you have read, make that devoured, this wonderful book." -- -Rod Lurie, Director, The Contender "Like Jonah writing from the belly of the whale, Carl Gottlieb's journal of the process of making Jaws comes from the unique perspective of one of the major players in the collaboration that resulted in Spielberg's classic movie." -- -John Landis, Director, The Blues Brothers

The behind the scenes story of making a movie classic.

I purchase this book being a life long fan of the movie Jaws. I had seen documentaries on the making and they referred to this classic book written by Carl Gottlieb around the time the actual film was made. It has since been updated with this edition providing updates on the lives and careers of the principles involved in the making of the film. This is a book that will only really appeal to movie buffs, particularly those interested in the creative process that goes into making a movie. You don't necessarily have to be a huge Jaws fan to get something out of it, but is certainly motivated me to buy it. The only let down for me was I thought that there would be more behind the scenes photos in the book that there turned out to be.
