Since he released his first film in the early 1970s Jerry Bruckheimer has influenced film making in innumerable ways. His blockbusters range from Flashdance, Glory Road and Top Gun to Pearl Harbor and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.

Bruckheimer has also been the driving force behind a number of Hollywood notables like Johnny Depp, Nicholas Cage, Eddie Murphy and Denzel Washington. He has nurtured an equally impressive group of seasoned directors including Paul Schrader, Michael Mann and Tony Scott.

This over-sized pictorial is filled with page upon page of photos of this producer's work. Along with a short narrative, it chronicles a body of work that is as remarkable as it is groundbreaking. These breathtaking color photos tell the story of a very special career and, as you'll see, there's lots to say, hence the length of the book.

Granted this book is a bit pricy, but after paging through it you'll agree it is worth every penny.
