Publisher's Summary

Stan Lee - comic book legend and cocreator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes - shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.
Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics and has brought to life - and into the mainstream - some of the world's best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories - filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possess previously unseen psychological complexity - have added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good versus evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so created a new mythology for the 20th century.
Stan Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career.
Funny, moving, and incredibly honest, this beautiful memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.

cute, funny, short and very well narrated story.

Stan is the man and this is his story (in brief). A fun and entertaining read.

Stan The Man

Any additional comments?

My only criticism of this wonderful book is it is far too short apart from that it is perfect!<br/>I stopped reading comics about 35 years ago but when I was a kid Marvel Super-heros were part of my life as was the legendary Stan "The Man" Lee, so it was so nice to find out a little more about him and how Marvel was run. I understand this was originally published a graphic-novel (or should that be comic?) so maybe I'll check that out too!

its was a great to listen to but it seem to jump around a fair amount with regrads to the story.
