This is the best book for anyone who is totally gaga for 2001: A Space Odyssey. It's really compilation of press materials preceding and following the release of the film. Including letters from fans to Stanley Kubrick, the Arthur C. Clarke short story that inspired Kubrick to make the film and a great bit about a composer who breaks his neck writing and original score to the film that obviously wasn't used. Kubrick gets real heavy on science and aliens in an interview at the end. A total treat to anyone who freakin' loves 2001. 

Review: The Making of Kubrick's 2001

User Review  - J. Bryce - Goodreads

One of the most interesting "making of" books out there, especially given the subject matter: watching it today, it's hard to imagine how Kubrick could possibly have gotten the images he did in an era before CGI, and when prosthetic makeup effects were in their infancy. Probably out of print. Read full review
