A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal
“This book is an instant cult classic”
“We can't believe this actually exists, but the world is certainly a better place for it”
New York Magazine
“It’s as enlightening as it is thorough.”
“Uproariously funny... the film book I never knew I always wanted to read.”
“Vern turns his curious love of the oeuvre of aging action star Steven Seagal into a new branch of academia”
“REQUIRED READING. [Vern] analyzes Seagal's body of work - including energy drinks he endorsed - as if he were deconstructing the Bible”
New York Post
“One of the most compulsively readable film books ever published and I’m not kidding about that even a little bit”
Vern promises it's ‘the book that will shake the very foundations of film criticism, break their wrists and then throw them through a window.’ SOLD!”
“What, you thought they only had study books for Darwin? That’s right, one of the most intriguing film stars of all time is finally getting his due”
“Huge fun...a great loo book for any action fan”
“A life-changing piece of literature”
“affectionate, in-depth and often side splitting”
“A raucous, thigh-slapping and informative read… an unexpected gem”
“[Vern is] a talented and entertaining writer… Seagalogists, your Bible has arrived”
“Perhaps never before has so much effort been expended on a subject of such limited cultural importance. Nor has it been done to such sidesplitting, wrist-breaking, glass-shattering effect”
The Columbus Dispatch
“Seagalogy isn't a mere work of absurd niche market fanboyism: It's a definitive text.”
