Rhett and Link are two of the funniest guys you've probably never heard of. They host the daily YouTube show Good Mythical Morning, the podcast Ear Biscuits, have appeared on Jimmy Fallon, and created the viral "NOPE! Chuck Testa!" local taxidermy commercial.
Amidst all the hijinx, there's also a very powerful tale of staying true to yourself, and a heartwarming story of two guys who have been attached at the hip since grade school making it against all odds.
The Book of Mythicality is a cross between a coffee table book, media companion, an activity book and a memoir. That is to say, there's something for everyone in here.
I read this book along with my 8 year old, and we were both laughing out loud the whole way through. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Some people might say that the Duplass Brothers are a little weird. That they're a little TOO close. That they have seemed to fail upwards.

They'd probably agree with you.This is a super-fun, breezy memoir by the movie-making brothers behind films such as Safety Not Guaranteed.While there is a bit of Hollywood name dropping here and there, it's mostly a coming of age tale, told by brothers who obviously have a deep love for others, a connection so strong it sometimes created a bubble around them.

I read this whole thing in an afternoon, and I smiled the entire time. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Among the other attributes of this lavishly illustrated history of the Great White Way is the fact that it features many plays and musicals that do not often appear in more conventional books about Broadway. Some of the entries date back into the 19th century, but the book also includes modern classics such as “Hamilton” and “Wicked.” This is the perfect gift for the discerning theater enthusiast. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

Blade Runner flopped in theaters in 1982 but went on to become one of the most influential films of the century. Sammon was there from the beginning, reporting from the set for Cinefantastique. Packed with insight from Philip K. Dick, Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford and more, this isn't just the epic history of a scifi masterpiece, but a must-read about Hollywood movie-making. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
