'A beautiful book on the Taxi Driver director's career by former Sunday Times film critic Tom Shone who relishes Scorsese's "energetic winding riffs that mix cinema history and personal reminiscence".' — Kate Muir, The Times
"Movie fans will be delighted to discover that Tom Shone’s lavishly illustrated new tome about the great man is no mere coffee table book. Shone expertly guides us through Scorsese’s long career, from the early years of  film school and guerrilla film-making, to those classic movies of the 1970s and ’80s, and on to his more recent period. Scorsese’s own contributions and those of his collaborators are frequent, but Shone shows a fine appreciation of his subject, too. Describing Taxi Driver (1976) as having ‘the stillness of a cobra’ is both pithy and apposite.... Fascinating stuff." — Michael Doherty, RTE Guide
