Great for any Whedon fan

As with any anthology, there are some really good essays and some that I didn't enjoy as much. But it's always fun to revisit Buffy/Firefly and look at them through different lenses. Also, apparently it's a Colby Elliott thing, but this book does the same weird thing where the sound "quality" changes? Like you can tell when they used different takes in the middle of a paragraph and it's weird and annoys me.
