Hi Michael,

I haven't seen a review copy yet, but Doug Pratt has a book out called "Doug
Pratt's DVD-Video Guide" (420 pp., $19.95) which features 2,400-plus DVD
reviews. It's being sold at,, and at 800-269-6422. FYI, you should be getting your copy of
the latest "Video Librarian" in the next week or so; beginning with the new
issue, we've started a new column called "DVD Spotlight" which reviews the
extras on new DVDs.
