    Mark Taylor is one of the most talented people in the universe. As such, he's allowed to make up his own rules and break a few others once in a while.

    It's whatever rolls best off the tongue. And this wouldn't be the first time it's been written that way:

    I wonder what the delay is? I believe this has been close to ready for almost 2 years.

    But the title should be He-Man & Me. Basic grammar!
    Same. And THANK you.

    Yeesh. Do you guys picket Broadway shows whenever The King and I is running?

    I sat through Roger Sweet's book, with all of its grammatical flubs. Pretty sure I can enjoy Mark Taylor's book without bemoaning the death of the English language because he chose a technically incorrect though popularly accepted usage of "I" in place of "me".

    Both king and I are subjects, not objects, so The King and I is grammatically correct.

    So any word on this or is this a thread just to talk about the title and how some feel it's wrongly worded?

    Ok so marks not having health problems then? That's what I was thinking it was and was going to message her to see. Glad you did. I hope we get word on this prior so I can get a copy.

    And neither He-Man nor I are subjects?

    The subject of the title is Odyssey. He-Man and Taylor are modifiers.

    He-Man and I are the subjects. Odyssey is the modifier, since it's describing the relationship of the two subjects.

    He-Man and I: An Odyssey is as grammatically correct as The King and I: The Musical. You can picket the latter next time it's in town, but I'm pretty sure nobody will care, just like with the title of this book.

    Mark Taylor's autobiography "He-Man & I: an Odyssey"

    A tale about an odyssey embarked upon by He-Man and me.

    A tale about an odyssey which He-Man and I embarked upon.

    Both are right depending on the arrangement of the sentence. The title is not a complete sentence. Simple stuff.

    I want to read this book, even if it were titled “Me and He-Man”.
