    1. A fantastic read for people looking into the career of Spike Lee, as I currently am.

    2. This book, like the one Spike Lee put together for Do The Right Thing, includes his journal of the filmmaking process. Since this was Spike's first feature length film, the journal is an authentic testament to the difficulties that a young filmmaker usually faces.
