As a fan, if I saw a book in a store and didn't have it, I'd probably buy it. Even if it was similar to books I've already got. Can never have enough Eastwood memorabilia. 8)

I have the really nice coffee table book, Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker at Work. How does it compare to that? If I already have that, do I need this one? I have not actually ever seen this book in person.

Clint: A Retrospective and Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker at Work are definitely two different books.

Clint: A Retrospective is a book with beautiful pictures, which chronogically presents Clint Eastwood career in movies, as an actor and a director, year by year, film by film. Originally, the first edition went from A Fistful of Dollars (1964) to Invictus (2009). The last edition that I have (in French) includes Sully (2016).
The first edition came out in 2010 and celebrated the 35 years of collaboration between Clint and Warner Bros. It is like a piece companion to The Eastwood Factor, the 2010 documentary directed by Richard Schickel. If you remember, a Clint Eastwood dvd collection (35 years, 35 films) came out at that time, which was illustrated by the same cover than that book (Clint at three different stages of his career: Million Dollar Baby, Pale Rider and Kelly's Heroes).

Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker at Work is a great book. I bought it when it came out in late 2012.
Most of the pictures were rare or never seen before. That book is more focused on Clint Eastwood the director and the technical aspects of filmmaking like cinematography, art direction, production design and visual effects. That book presents the behind-the-scenes side of some Clint movies.
Many famous collaborators of Clint were interviewed for that book.

AKA23, to answer to your question: I have the two books and I do not have the feeling to have the same book.
I would say that Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker is more ambitious than Clint: A Retrospective because it goes deeper to the technical aspects of some Clint films.
Clint: A Retrospective presents his body of work, with Clint and Richard Schickel comments on films. There is no deep analysis and the pictures dominate the text.
However, it remains a great book to have for a Clint Eastwood books collection.

I just checked my edition and saw that it ends with J. Edgar.

I picked this up in a charity shop (thrift store) here in Scotland the other day.

Why have I not bought it before?! Fantastic book!

Yes, this is a pretty good book with beautiful pictures. The introduction on Clint career is interesting too.
The comments on films seemed sincere: for instance, Richard Schickel stated that The Beguiled was really the first important Clint film since The Dollars trilogy.
Schickel did not hesitate to share some of his personal favorite Clint films like The Enforcer or the Philo Beddoe films, which are generally put among the weakest Clint films.
This book was updated a couple times. The last version includes Sully.
Unfortunately, it seems that there will be no more updating, since Richard Schickel passed away in February 2017.

I watched the first episode of Cobra Kai when it was still a Youtube TV show. I liked it but didn't watch any more. I think I'll check it out when I get Netflix again, which will probably be this summer.

Last week I watched The Hardy Boys Hulu series that came out late last year. I am a fan of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, and I enjoyed this series. It went in a direction I wasn't expecting. Hopefully there's a second season.

I know I've brought up Cobra Kai before, but has anyone watched it? It's really fun.  O0

We watched the first couple of episodes and it was ok. Another case of hearing great things but didn?t grab me. I suppose we should start watching again.
