About the Author

Hayao Miyazaki is one of Japan's most beloved animation directors. In September 2005 he was awarded the Venice International Film Festival's Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement, and his Studio Ghibli received the Festival's Osella Award for overall achievement in 2004. Miyazaki's films include Spirited Away, winner of the 2002 Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature Film, as well as Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle, all of which have received great acclaim in the U.S. Miyazaki's other achievements include the highly regarded manga series Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, which is published in English by VIZ Media. Nausicaä, like many of the director's movies, is now available on DVD in the U.S.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, though a little repetitive March 19 2010
By Theowne
This book is a collection of writings and speeches by Hayao Miyazaki. As you expect, there are some very insightful pieces in the book that help you understand the man and his background a little more. Fans of Studio Ghibli films will enjoy several long chapters dedicated to discussing his favourite works. However, you should not purchase the book expecting an autobiography or anything of that nature. The only flaw with this book is that it is merely a collection of unrelated things Miyazaki has written - and thus there is a lot of repetition. However, I'm sure that any fan of Miyazaki will overlook this and enjoy the book for what it is.
