Steve McQueen: The Actor and His Films

Steve McQueen: The Actor and His Films

While Steve McQueen is one of the most talked- and written-about stars of all time, no prior tome on the man has gone as deep Steve McQueen: The Actor and His Films ($45). Weighing in at nearly 500 pages, this hefty book tracks his journey from his delinquent beginnings through to his late career, including accounts of every film he made, as well as plenty of insights into his techniques and behind-the-scenes stories from filming. A great way to fill the time vacuum left by the impending end of the NFL season.

  • The Cult of Lego

    Sure, they might have taken the title from a similar book about Macs and the people who love them, but that doesn't make The Cult of Lego ($27) any less awesome. Weighing in at over 300 pages, this interesting tome looks at the Lego community and its creations, from a tiny Yankee stadium to a remote-controlled Jawa Sandcrawler, all lovingly photographed and presented in high-quality, full-color images. It's the next best thing to buying yourself a 1,000+ piece model.
