The Ebook that I read was horribly designed. I endured it. Others with less patience may find parts of it unreadable, and prefer the printed volume. I borrowed this book from my library's Ebook service upon the advent of my serious consideration of seeking ordination as a priest in the Church of The Latter Day Dude. I also watched the movie when I was about half way through the book.
I started listening to Jeff Bridge's self titled country album in the bath, too. Oh yeah, and I ordered some medical marijuana, therapy for my recently diagnosed arthritis, and my not-so-recently diagnosed PTSD. Seems like this book might be the one for this time and this place, dude.
Some things received a lot of attention, while other things were touched only briefly. Neither comprehensiveness nor exhaustiveness alone doth a good book make. Jul 02, Mike rated it liked it. While this was a fun read that definitely spurred me to go back and watch the movie, I was hoping for more trivia and discussion of the making of the film - instead, there was a lot about The Big Lebowski as a western, The Big Lebowski as film noir, etc.

A great book for fans of the movie. Lots of interesting stories, quotes, interviews, photos, and artwork. It was easily on its way to a 5 star rating, however it started to lag towards the end and felt kind of like it was being filled out. Jul 28, Lindsey rated it it was amazing Shelves: pop-culture , reviews. As soon as I finished the last page I turned the movie on.
It was amazing, as always. The book was well-written and had a lot of cool information. The illustrations were awesome. This book is definitely a must have for any fan of the Big Lebowski. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. It's a good book, and thorough Everything you ever wanted to know about the Coen brothers' inspiration for The Big Lebowski. Useless knowledge that is bound to awe and a TON of Lebowski inspired art on every page.
