Hal Leonard Corporation, Feb 1, 2015 - Biography & Autobiography - 400 pages
(FAQ). Quentin Tarantino is a man who came to Hollywood and didn't break the rules so much as make plain that he didn't even notice them. Making the films he wanted to see, Tarantino broke through with Reservoir Dogs in 1992 and then cemented his reputation in 1994 with the release of Pulp Fiction . As his fame grew, he spread his love for movies that are far from commonplace through his promotion of older films and theaters and by reviving the stalled careers of actors such as John Travolta, Pam Grier, and David Carradine. Quentin Tarantino FAQ examines the movies directed by Tarantino, the influences on his work, and the inspiration he gave to others. There are also chapters on certain recurring elements in his films, from fake "product placement" to the music, actors, and even cinematic moments used. The book also reviews his work in television, the articles written about him or by him over the years, his acting career, his public battles, and some of the projects he abandoned along the way. It all comes together to tell the story of a man who forged his own unique path and helped shape the way movies are made today.

Incorrectly states that the prison from Natural Born Killers (Statesville Correctional Center) is the same prison from The Blues Brothers. It is NOT, the Blues Brothers used Joliet Correctional Center. While these two prisons are only a few miles apart, they are separate facilities, and the lack of fact checking makes me wonder how much of this book is unchecked facts and repeated urban legends.
