This book began as a germ of an idea about a year or so ago, but it wasn’t an idea I took very seriously at first. Too much on my plate at the time, dealing with too many other things, juggling too many other projects.
But in the run up to the show’s final eight episodes, my fever for all things Breaking Bad reached ridiculous proportions. I spent an absurd amount of time digging into what made this show special with friends like Rick Lundeen (who did that killer cover illustration) and others. And as I chatted up anyone willing to listen, I took notes. Lots and lots of notes. Lots and lots and lots of notes.
Those notes became the seeds of this book. It ain’t no collection of random thoughts, though. It’s a full-on, real-deal, 20-chapter exploration of the entire show from episode one to the finale, diving into the characters, moments, and motivations that kept us glued to the TV for six years. My goal was to take what I learned during the writing of A Year of Hitchcock and Hitchcock’s Villains, combine it with my enthusiasm for the show, and use it to create a book worth reading. I’m pretty proud of it. Hope you enjoy. Check it out on Amazon at this link.
