George Lucas's Blockbusting

George Lucas's Blockbusting

Clocking in at nearly 1,000 pages, George Lucas's Blockbusting ($20) is part reference, part history, and all movies. This unique book takes a look back at the movie industry decade by decade, examining all aspects — including revenues, costs, production and distribution, salary histories, photography days required, and more — of 300 important blockbusters from cinema's past, complete with plenty of charts, graphs, and diagrams.

  • The Complete National Geographic

    We've covered complete periodical collections before, but never one that arrives on its own dedicated hard drive. The Complete National Geographic ($200) includes digital reproductions of every Nat Geo issue from 1888 - 2008, including all the classic maps, photographs, and articles, all searchable from within an advanced custom interface. All the content arrives on a 160GB USB hard drive, with plenty of room left over for updates, and 100GB allotted for personal use. [Thanks, Gautam]

  • Lobel's Meat Bible

    It's one thing to love eating meat, and quite another to love learning about it. If you fall into the latter category, consider picking up Lobel's Meat Bible ($27). Written by the Lobel family of master butchers, this 320-page epicurean excursion includes extensive information on beef, pork, lamb, rabbit, poultry, veal, and more, explanations of texture, flavor, and contents, and more than 150 recipes from various cuisines and origins.
