"The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai changed my life because it was my first exposure to the concept of the modern Renaissance Man, as epitomized in the old pulp hero Doc Savage (and later recast as Buckaroo Banzai and Batman, among others). Man, I wanted to be a Doc Savage all through high school and college, but the thing is, it's hard to be as competent as a fictional hero. The book also was my introduction to the entire concept of a detailed fictional backstory for the publication, as well as the characters within it. That changed my perspectives on writing, as well."
