Description
"Caseen Gaines has written a very compelling and enjoyable history of our trilogy. For me, reading it was like going back in time. And - Great Scott - there were even a few anecdotes that I'd never heard!" - Bob Gale, co-creator, co-producer, and co-writer of the Back to the Future trilogy "The most enlightening and informative book I've read since Grays Sports Almanac. Every true fan of the Holy Trilogy should own a copy... It's your density." -Ernest Cline, DeLorean owner/Author of Ready Player One "We Don't Need Roads is the truly fascinating story of how one of America's greatest movie franchises came to be. Caseen Gaines' in-depth research and unprecedented look at Robert Zemeckis' series proves that the journey to make a perfect movie is anything but perfect. It's a must read for any true Back to the Future lover and anyone who wants to peek behind the curtain to see how films get made." - Adam F. Goldberg, creator of ABC's The Goldbergs "Read this book, then watch the movie for the umpteenth time. You'll appreciate Back to the Future all the more thanks to Caseen Gaines' muscular reporting and conversational writing style." - Michael Davis, New York Times bestselling author of Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street "What fun! Deeply researched and engagingly written, Caseen Gaines' We Don't Need Roads is the book Back to the Future fans have been craving for decades. Geekily enthusiastic and chock full of never-before-heard tales of what went on both on and off the screen, We Don't Need Roads is a book worthy of the beloved trilogy itself." - Brian Jay Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Jim Henson: The Biography "Even the most knowledgeable Future fans will find much to learn from this intricately detailed and exhaustively researched book. But it's not just the depth of Gaines's knowledge and the scope of his interviews that impresses; he clearly adores these films and understands their importance to popular cinema, and that love and understanding shines through the text." - Jason Bailey, author of Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino's Masterpiece "The 30th anniversary of the Back to the Future trilogy is the perfect time for a book celebrating and examining the greatest comedy science fiction time travel trilogy ever made. With over five hundred hours of interviews with key cast and crew members, Caseen Gaines' book is a delightful way to travel back to the future and relive those wonderful times with Marty McFly, his family, friends, and enemies - not to mention the inimitable Doc Brown. Strap into your DeLorean and get ready for the ride of your life!" - Marc Scott Zicree, author of The Twilight Zone Companion "We Don't Need Roads is essential for any Back To the Future fan. Not only does Caseen Gaines offer up a meticulously crafted and entertaining account of one of the most beloved time-traveling franchises in movie history, but he uses his access to take an incisive look behind-the-scenes of Hollywood filmmaking. A must read for all pop culture aficionados." Larry Landsman, author of Planet of the Apes Revisited "A must-read for Future fans, media studies students, aspiring filmmakers, and time-travel buffs." --Library Journal
