Summary: There’s a host of information out there on the Back to the Future trilogy, but never before has there been a book like this.

The history of the films, cartoons, toys, and more. The Back to the Future series is a timeless collection greatly revered by all audiences. The beauty of this book by Brad Gilmore is that it doesn’t present the history of the film as textbook information. He discusses these films from a place of passion and so effectively reveals how the history behind the movies is just as engaging as the films themselves.

Unheard details and trivia. Gilmore, a radio and television host and host of Back to the Future: The Podcast, is an expert on all things Back to the Future. Pairing his knowledge with his passion for the films, Gilmore uses this book to discuss details and movie trivia that reveal just why the trilogy has stood the test of time. As a fan speaking to fellow fans, he dives into fan theories and provides answers to many questions readers have—because they are the very questions he himself has asked.

Back From the Future

Are you a Back to the Future fan? If so this is the book for you. I loved the movies and have seen them multiple times but even I learned new things. I guess I’m not a superfan. I had no idea there were theme park rides or that there was an animated tv show.

This is a little book so it won’t take you too long to read. It’s still chock full of information for the Back to the Future fan.

The book talks about all three movies, the animated series, the toys, the theme park ride, Future Day and more. What a cute little book. I remember Future Day aka October 21, 2015, the day they travelled to in the movie. To me it was just a cute “Oh look it’s the date from Back to the Future!” day. I had no idea there were celebrations or special events happening. The book talks all about that.

The book also talks about Biff more than I’ve ever seen anywhere else. I have never put much thought into his character so it was interesting.
