2.0 out of 5 stars Doh! 30 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback
Is this the kind of book which poses questions then answers them? Yes it is. Is it any good? Not really. I found it stodgy for the most part. A lot of time is spent on the business aspect of the show, how much revenue it generated, who owned what shares, who ripped off who, who got diddled out of the merchandising money etc. Slighty more interesting when talking about the writing process, and cultural impact of the Simpsons, but only slightly. It's not really a book written by an author, more a collection of quotes from various people involved with the show, with linking paragraphs by the author. So, how many stars will I give it? 2

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a book about The Simpsons 23 Nov 2010
By Gran2
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book, looking at the history of the greatest show ever. And it's about time.

The only criticisms are the fact that the book clearly hasn't been proof read, because there are numerous grammatical and factual errors in it. And some skipping over certain parts of the show (especially the Oakley/Weinstein years, the last two good seasons).

But overall, a must for any Simpsons fan, very readable (using an oral interview style) and very informative in parts.
