Take a very long, very boring text with some redeeming qualities and cut out all the mind numbing stuff and you'll have a Good Parts Version of it. The most famous Good Parts Version of anything was William Goldman's version of the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. Actually, Goldman's grandfather (?) created the first condensed version when he read it to him as a child. Goldman was shocked that when he managed to find the book and give it to his son, he hated it. After Will read it himself, he realised what his father had done. He then put his own Good Parts Version into the book we all know and love. It seems that Morgenstern's original manuscript can no longer be found, leading to people claiming that neither the book nor Morgenstern himself every existed. How silly.
