Oh my god I am so fucking psyched for this!

From the authors' website:

I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski. That's Terrific.

To some The Big Lebowski is just a movie, to others it is The Movie. When we decided to get some friends together at a tiny bowling alley in Kentucky to drink White Russians and celebrate our favorite movie, Lebowski Fest was born. We discovered we were not alone and fellow fans from around the world, aka the “Achievers”, started coming out of the woodwork.

We, the bums who started Lebowski Fest, have been given the modest task of assembling a fan book for what we feel is the greatest movie of all time (condolences, Citizen Kane). At times we felt we were out of our element, but we went out and achieved anyway.

I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski
begins with a foreword by Jeff Bridges and includes behind the scenes photos taken by him on the set. To bring to light all we could about the making of this movie, we interviewed everyone from John Goodman, Julianne Moore and John Turturro, to the actors that played smaller roles like the Ralph’s Checkout Girl, Liam and yes, even Saddam.

We tracked down the inspirations for the story and its characters, including Jeff Dowd (The Dude), John Milius (Walter) and the man whose rug really tied the room together, Peter Exline. We even found the real Little Larry, a kid who, indeed, actually stonewalled two crazy men waving his homework around in a baggie.

The book is complete with trivia, interviews with fellow Achievers, tips on Dude-ifying your life, a Little Larry flipbook, a guide to the film’s locations, Lebowski Fest highlights and a whole lot of what-have-you.

I can't believe there are bigger Lebowski fans out there than me and Paul.
