You ever wonder or was ever interested to know more about the creative side and the brilliant mind that brought to life and know for directing the drama film Schindler’s List (1993), which earned him the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Director?

This book gives you all you want to know about Steven Allan Spielberg, he is a Jewish film director. Michael Jolls, as the author analyzes the mind and the creative ideas of Mr. Spielberg.

Where does his imagination come from?

Why his artistic ideas are working?

“Jaws” for example is a brilliant film that kicked off the blockbuster summer movie era in the mid-70s and is still one of the biggest money-makers of all time.

Because of Jaws’ huge commercial success, academics have spent over 40-years interpreting the meaning of the film whether it was an allegory for the Vietnam War in which America feels powerless against guerilla attacks and corrupt civic leaders; and so the common man must take personal responsibility for restoring order. Or is Jaws a psychological drama as three men represent a dysfunction family with a harsh father in Robert Shaw, a rebellious son in Richard Dreyfuss and a disinterested child in Roy Schneider. Or perhaps Spielberg intended Jaws to be a literary adaptation of Moby Dick with Robert Shaw as the manic Captain Ahab.

Michael Jolls, has well written this novel to introduce what Steven Spielberg has done with films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), E.T. (1982), Jurassic Park (1993), Saving Private Ryan (1998), War of the Worlds (2005) and The Post (2017). Not only to introduce the creative side, but also the challenges Spielberg had to deal with in order to make these films very successful on screen..
