Description by OLDIES.com:

"Doctor David Banner, physician, scientist, searching for a way to tap into the hidden strength that all humans have. Then an accidental overdose of Gamma Radiation alters his body chemistry. And now, when David Banner grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphosis occurs..." You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: A Hulk Companion is the incredible true story behind "The Incredible Hulk" TV series in one Hulk sized book! For 5 seasons, Banner traveled the backroads of America (which resemble the Universal Studios backlot) on his quest to cure himself. You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: A Hulk Companion tells the tragic story of star Bill Bixby, whose real-life misfortunes left him resembling his tormented alter ego, David Banner. With Marvel heroes now Hollywood's biggest stars, "The Incredible Hulk" was their first live action success! The book introduces you to: -Hulk creators Stan Lee & Jack Kirby and how the comic-book character was cancelled after only six issues! . -Lou Ferrigno, The Hulk himself and how the upbeat, deaf bodybuilder became TV's unlikeliest star. -Meet the men who played Thor, Demi-Hulk & Evil Hulk on the show. -Guests like Xander Berkeley, Loni Anderson, Rick Springfield & Edie McClurg! With over 500 pages of Gamma-powered goodness, the book includes: exclusive interviews, rare photos & a moving foreword by Lou Ferrigno. -A complete episode guide, including all 5 TV movies & 2 feature films. ---The unfinished SHE-HULK pilot Bill Bixby appeared in and reveals what sports star played her. -What color were Hulk & She-Hulk going to be on TV? (Hint: NOT Green!) -Which Bond villain was cast as Hulk before Ferrigno? -What California governor almost landed the role...but wasn't tall enough? Journalist PATRICK A. JANKIEWICZ, writer for Wizard & Fangoria, takes an incredible look at the incredible cult TV series!

Jankiewicz's book gives you a complete history of The Incredible Hulk, beginning with its inception as a comic book, it's incarnation as the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno TV series, and on through the feature films and even gives us the lowdown about the incomplete She-Hulk pilot (For instance, I never knew that footage was actually shot with Bill Bixby in Hawaii. Why has New World Pictures never released this raw footage as a bonus feature to the DVDs of The Incredible Hulk relaunch shows?). Overall the book is very informative, but suffers from a lack of editing. The same information is often repeated, but slightly reworded, sometimes in the same paragraph. For instance, in the section concerning one of my favorite Hulk episodes, "The First," we are repeatedly told that Frye's Creature is "a monster and a killer," "a berserk green killer," and "he's angry and murderous." [We get it, already! Frye's creature is an evil Hulk that likes to kill.] There is also the occasional typo, but being a writer myself with a small publishing house, that sort of thing happens all the time. On the whole, though, this book will tell you just about everything you ever wanted to know about the Incredible Hulk and then some. It's recommended.
