    1. This book would have benefited from a skilled copy editor Despite that annoyance, I liked it for providing a decent overview of PKD s life and work and an in depth look at the adaptation processes by which his stories have been brought to film It also pays proper homage to his far reaching influence on modern consciousness It s a useful addition to anyone s SF or PKD library.

    2. Very interesting look at Philip K Dick and his stories, and how they were transformed into film I didn t read the entire book but will certainly return to it another day.
