Whether any book on creativity and camera technique could be considered "authoritative and complete" is highly unlikely. Jerry spent years upon years assimilating, collaborating and writing the material for his book and in regards to Steadicam it is incredibly comprehensive. However, the nature of printed publishing out-dates books before they hit the rack. Who'd have ever guessed 2-3 years ago we'd see two dozen Canon 5D's on every set in the hands of an equal number of Producers
Read every book you can get your hands on, practice your craft, experiment with unfamiliar techniques and learn as much as you can about cinematic story telling.
