    I like the book, but it falls off towards the end. Maybe it's the lack of candor he mentions from people still working for Marvel, but even if you take into consideration the lack of juicy gossip and the increasing coproratization, the "New Marvel" section feels less engaged.

    Finished the book last night. Loved it.

    Does anybody know where I can find the audio to that infamous Jack Kirby b-day radio interview?

    Very interesting book.

    Honestly, I would say its a must read for every Marvel fan.

    That being said, I would say the book was very....kind to Stan Lee. It certainly depicted a lot of events from his perspective.

    Yeah, I really liked the the book, but the entire last decade of Marvel is basically done in 30 pages.
