THE BIONIC BOOK: SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN AND THE BIONIC WOMAN RECONSTRUCTED by Herbie J. Pilato

Before Hiro on Heroes, there was Steve Austin on The Six Million Dollar Man. Before Buffy Summers on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, there was Jaime Sommers on The Bionic Woman.

Now, television's classic wonder people of the 1970s are back and stronger than ever.

Co-billed as the Cybernetic Compendium To TV's Most Realistic Sci-Fi Superhero Shows, The Bionic Book is chock full of commentary culled from Pilato's exclusive interviews with:

-Bionic stars Lee Majors (who played half-superman/half-mechanical marvel Steve Austin)

-Lindsay Wagner (who played Jaime Sommers, Steve's female counter-part and true love)

-Series creator and science fiction novel icon Martin Caidin

-Series Executive Producer Harve Bennett (who would later help to ignite the Star Trek feature film franchise)

-Series Producer/Director Kenneth Johnson (The Incredible Hulk and Alien Nation)

-Actor Richard Anderson, (who portrayed Oscar Goldman, Steve and Jaime's stoic but understanding supervisor on both shows).

Explore in depth the social, psychological, medical, and scientific influences, and the appeal and messages behind two of the most popular and heroic science fiction television programs of all time.

Foreword by Richard Anderson. 400 pages. Illustrated.
