I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
I am a huge Wizard of Oz fan -- of both the book and movie. Anytime I can get my hands on something related to the world of Oz, I'm going to do it -- so naturally I picked this book up from Netgalley when I had the chance.
Overall, it was a very informative, introspective on everything and anything related to Wizard of Oz. It covered a wide array of topics and was set up much like a textbook would be. I found a lot of useful information, including what scenes were shot and never made it to the final film, disproved rumors (NO, there wasn't a suicide on set), etc.
Some of the commentary is a bit awkward and heavy-handed, but overall the book was a gem of Wizard of Oz resources. Any history or film buff will appreciate the great detail that went into this book. I don't like the title, but the cover and subsequent illustrations and photographs were priceless.
