A wonderful book on Whedon for both total novices and long-term Whedon fans. Lavery's approach is very fresh and quite apropos to his subject -- a study of creativity more than a straight-up biography -- and his writing is as fun and accessible as it is erudite and researched. Lavery has been a master of TV Studies for some time, and with this book he shows himself quite adept at Auteur Theory, as well.
