This book required 2 years of labor and a lifetime of dedication to the Dragon Ball community. It is my way of saying thank you to Akira Toriyama, to everyone who created Dragon Ball in Japan and internationally, and to the global fandom.

“Dragon Soul is a must read for anyone who has ever been a fan of Dragon Ball, or for those interested in how fandom shapes the lives and personalities of people.” – Amazon.com review
