The best of what made us the baby boomer generation:
heroes, elders, contemporaries; music, movies,books, tv, arts, science, stuff, insights, events.

As for the De Haven book, it’s not the most thorough history of any aspect, especially of Superman’s origins in the Depression years (told so well in Men of Tomorrow by Gerald Jones.)
There is more about the later comic book history, including the Death of Superman issue (above), which apparently was a set-up for the forthcoming Lois & Clark. The book ends as Superman Returns is released, which was also the occasion of a lot of Superman material, including a new documentary film as well as the Donner Superman II.
