  1. Excellent essay Thought provoking with statements that were well supported with comparative examples and contrasting references It is a pleasure to read a well written exposition Once begun I read it in one sitting though initially I had no interest in reading the piece It had style and pace, addressing readers as knowledgeable equals Having no need to traffic in clumsily hidden agendas, correctness, name calling, or attempts at insider insecure humor it did not I will look for Mr Cullen in the [...]


  2. I have to object to the negative reviews here as each one seems to have a personal axe to grind I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about American history, the great Tom Hanks, and or popular culture Following the trajectory of Hanks career, Cullen, a student and professor of American history, summarizes film plots and relates them to contemporary and historical issues, giving the reader unique insights and revelations about an extraordinary actor and producer In today s culture of [...]


  3. Very stimulating A great job of blending sweeping historical trends with Tom Hank c s character Enjoyed all the comments on the movies


  4. I found this to be very interesting It offered insights into his many roles in TV and the movies He is one of my favorite actors It brought back many memories of his earlier roles, especially TV, which most of us may have forgotten.

  6. You get what you pay for I bought this as a kindle single, thought it would be interesting It had its moments, I just fail to understand how the title truly related to tom hanks in a deeper sense I thought the time magazine article that the author mentions was a better read None the less a short bathroom read for the price


  7. Let me start by saying that I really like Tom Hanks as an actor He has the ability to do both comedy and drama very well I bought this book hoping to learn about the person rather than his roles However, this book is nearly worthless to the general fan as it rehashes the story line of every one of his roles I ve seen the movies and have a memory, thank you The only useful information that I got from the book is that I may have been wrong all this time when I tell people that I am not related to [...]
