Praise for the Book

“It’s the perfect book for people obsessed with the films of that totally tubular decade, but who could never figure out exactly why. Who would have thought one could learn life lessons from Roadhouse?”

Matthew Rettenmund, author of Totally Awesome ’80s and
Encyclopedia Madonnica 20

“The ’80s were not the greatest decade for movies (although there were certainly some great movies released) but for those who came of age watching these films in the theater or, a few years later, on cable, it’s a special era. “Your ’80s Movie Guide to Better Living” is a loving tribute to that decade, and fans of those films should have a good time.”

Daniel M. Kimmel, film critic and author of I’ll Have What She’s
Having — Behind the Scenes of the Great Romantic Comedies
