Publishing in 1989, it details his work on animated cartoons for Warner Bros. and includes material such as the nine rules that all Road Runner cartoons had to follow and the people Chuck worked with during his career. The same section with the nine rules includes small drawings along the edge of the right-hand pages so that was the pages are turned or riffled, an animation is seen of Wile E. Coyote falling, getting up and walking away.

The paperback edition includes a preface from The Simpsons creator Matt Groening. Both the hardcover and paperback version include a foreword by director Steven Spielberg.
