"Darn Your Sinister Attraction!" - a Buffy essay. This is taken from "The Psychology of Joss Whedon: An Unauthorized Exploration of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly".

...and this is why I will never be an academic. I am too easily swayed. I can totally see this point of view now. I thoroughly enjoyed the essay. I think the arguments were well done, as I sure wasn't open to the narcissism thing at the outset. I'm sure there are others here who will be able to poke holes in the premise and I look forward to reading those too. Cuz I suck at it. ;-)

This book has long been on my reading list and this might push me over the edge and actually buy it. Can anyone here tell me if the rest of the essays are equally as thoughtful and well done?
I'm actually currently reading through that book and so far I'm quite impressed. I'd definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the above essay.
