From the Inside Flap:

ousand Bullets chronicles the work of the filmmaker Entertainment Weekly called "the most famous member of a generation of directors known for over-the-top action, wild comedy, and sensual melodrama," John Woo.

Opening on his early life in the violent slums of Hong Kong, this book follows his first jobs in cinema with Cathay Studios and the Shaw Brothers, where he made the kung fu movie The Young Dragons, which launched his career.

His 1992 film The Killer--which Quentin Tarantino called "the coolest movie ever made"--was declared a masterpiece, overtaking Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon as the most successful Hong Kong film of all time. His recent work includes Face/Off, the production of The Replacement Killers, the upcoming sequel to Mission Impossible and the filmed-in-Canada TV series "John Woo's Once a Thief."

From the Back Cover:

"The most famous member of a generation of directors known for over-the-top action, wild comedy, and sensual melodrama, Woo's gone Hollywood without losing his Hong Kong roots." --Entertainment Weekly
