    Lenburg, while able to show that he has a broad library for his data, makes some rudimentary mistakes that make the reading jarring and less believable.Two fundamental aspects if writing about the film maker are out of respect you should refer to the man by his last name rather than his first, and he does not like his films being called anime, preferring they be called animation films because he regards his quality to be higher than the quality of anime.Lenburg, should know this considering he proves that he has read the materials that state this information within the LA times articles he references in his partial bibliography He changes quotes within his book to suit his purpose none of the Disney animators quoted would call Miyazaki by his first name yet for his own continuity Lenburg changes them.On page 79 there is an example of what happens at several points within this book where a paragraph that does not fit with the rest of the chapter appears, references to Cinderella and stepsisters that presumably should have been part of the chapter on Howl s Moving Castle suggest a lack of decent editing and proof reading.Overall the book was a good starting point for complete novices learning about Miyazaki for the first time, but there are better sources that are much reliable out there with complete bibliographies and direct unchanged quotes Wikipedia would be cheaper and better proof read.
