Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2006
This has been a big year for Roger Ebert. In January 2005, he received "TelevisionWeek"'s Lifetime Achievement Award, and this summer he will be honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. It seems only fitting that his "Movie Yearbook" is annually regarded as the best place to turn to learn about and choose a movie. The 2006 volume contains all Ebert reviews written from January 2003 through June 2005. That includes blockbusters such as "Million Dollar Baby" and "The Aviator" along with surprise hits like "Sideways", and such moving films as "Hotel Rwanda" and "Vera Drake". (Oh, yes, and "Brown Bunny" as well.) Roger Ebert's "Movie Yearbook 2006" also includes all Ebert interviews and essays for the year, the biweekly Questions for the Movie Answer Man, and Ebert's well-respected film festival coverage. As if those weren't enough to keep any film buff glued to this book, it also contains a list of all movies previously appearing in Ebert's "Video Companion" or "Movie Yearbook" with the critic's star ratings.

About Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert, film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times and cohost of the national TV program Ebert & Roeper, earned a Pulitzer Prize for distinguished criticism. Readers in more than 200 newspapers across the United States and Canada rely upon his reviews. Roger was awarded an honorary degree in 2004 by the American Film Institute and the Online Film Critics Society named his Web site (www.rogerebert.com) the best Internet movie review site. He also hosts the annual Overlooked Film Festival at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
"From his earliest days reviewing movies on TV in 1975, Roger Ebert has enjoyed success because he developed a special connection with viewers. His 'thumbs up' recommendation is part of the American lexicon. Because he has been the most welcome of weekly guests in our homes for three decades, TelevisionWeek is proud to name Roger Ebert the recipient of our 2005 Syndication Personality Lifetime Achievement Award." - Lee Alan Hill, in TelevisionWeek "America's leading film critic." - The Guardian, London"
