received my copy.

Very good book. Highly informative work. Lots of photos.

Focus is mainly careerwise, films by films. Don't expect a biography such as Steven C Smith's Herrmann or Steiner books. The approach is different.

Discography is a big plus.

Next edition : the big Marc Shaiman interview ? wink

Bravo !

Thank you so much for the comments.

This type of positive opinion compensates for the enormous effort and so much time of work invested.

It encourages me to continue publishing these types of books.

Thanks from Spain!!!!

Congratulations Sergio.
I love the cover art.
Just placed an order with Amazon for a copy (£12.80 is a nice price and that includes postage).
I've always liked the music of Marc Shaiman.
It's big and bold and larger than life, not afraid to showcase strong themes and catchy melodies that embody what film music is to me.
I don't have everything by him on CD, but my collection is pretty decent and usually it was bought after I'd heard the music while watching the film and thought 'I've gotta have that'.
Some of my faves are HEART & SOULS (nice Grusin vibe in that one), the two CITY SLICKERS scores, NORTH, AMERICAN PRESIDENT, A FEW GOOD MEN and STUART SAVES HIS FAMILY.
I look forward to reading your work and good luck with your Basil Poledouris venture...I'll be all over that one!! smile

I'm a big Shaiman fan, and this book looks like a great overview of his career. This will be my first book purchase in along time.

Good news.

The book will be officially presented at MOSMA Malaga (Spain), with the presence of Marc Shaiman. On July 9.

In this festival there will also be two concerts with music by Marc.

More news very soon.

Damn!
We decided to swerve MOSMA this year, as, at the time, it looked like the concerts were just gonna be the Cobra Kai guys and Harold Faltermeyer.
If I'd known Shaiman was gonna play too, I'd have timed our jolly with the festival.
But we're going to Ibiza now, one week later!!!
