Review quote

""Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History" is one of the most lavish art books I have ever seen, rich with content, first class production values and beautifully designed. A must own!"
--Michael C. Gross, Producer, Ghostbusters/Ghostbusters II
"This sumptuous, luscious love letter to Ghostbusters is just like the film it chronicles: hilarious, sweet, irreverent, and thrilling. I read it from cover to cover as soon as it arrived. And I'm in it!! (Sorry my costume isn't that accurate)."
--Adam Savage, Mythbusters
"A comprehensive, absolutely beautiful book. Brought back many good memories for me. I don t know how they can produce such an elaborate book at this price."
--Joe Medjuck, Producer, Ghostbusters/Ghostbusters II
""Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History" has done what it set out to do and with honors. Its title is no misnomer. If this generation doesn t get a sequel to be proud of, it will still have this publication to at least remember Ghostbusters as a franchise to fondly anticipate. It s a title for youth, it s a title for adults; this is a book for any and every diehard Ghostbusters fan."
--David Kobylanski, Collider.com
With behind the scenes stories, concept art that s never been seen by the public, an intro written by Ivan Reitman himself (plus a foreword by Dan Aykroyd!), this just might be holy grail of gifts for any GB fan in your life.
--Blake Rodgers, Nerdist
""Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History" is a terrific backwards look at how a silly 1984 comedy was, to quote Dan Aykroyd s foreword, 'visually enlivened' into legend... With full access to the Ghostbusters archives, which we assume are guarded by Terror Dogs, this is a chronicle filled with revelations."
--Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online
