A fascinating exploration and celebration of the life and work of the coolest man in Hollywood, Samuel L.

The book features original reporting and explores not only the major events of Jackson's life but his obsessions: golf, kung fu movies, profanity. Bad Motherfucker also includes a detailed filmography of Jackson's movies--133 of them and counting The book provides a must-read road map through the vast territory of his filmography and more: a vivid portrait of Samuel L. Jackson's essential self.
