Die hard Simpsons fans will be really frustrated by this book. There is some interesting insight into the creation and production of the show, especially the writers room; however, there is a lot that they just skim over that you wish you could learn more about. They devote about a paragraph to the passing of Phil Hartman and the author barely mentions some of the most famous episodes like Homer at the Bat. Casual fans should enjoy the look behind the scenes.

Pulls back the curtain on the people behind the Simpsons.

Holds the dubious honour of being the most error-riddled book I have ever read. Full of spelling and grammar mistakes. A complete mess.
