"In Barnett’s book, readers are brought in to an expert’s passionate view of the show and its characters." Buddy TV
"What this book really did for me, though, was teach me to better understand and appreciate good scriptwriting. Author Barnett, whose own writing I found impressive, explains how the stories and the characters are developed and presented. . . . I think anyone reading this book will become a smarter viewer, not only of this series, but of other dramas." Exclusive Magazine
About the Author
Barbara Barnett writes the regular feature "Welcome to the End of the Thought Process: An Introspective Look at "House, M.D."" for "Blogcritics" online magazine, where she also serves as a television and film editor. She lives near Chicago.
More About the Author
Barbara has had an eclectic career. With an undergraduate degree in biology and minors in chemistry and English, she pursued a PhD in Public Policy Analysis after spending a few years working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Her first professional writing gig was with a food industry trade magazine, and although it wasn't exactly like writing for The New Yorker, it completely hooked her on the profession of writing.
She also writes lots of other things, including technology (from a non-geek perspective), the movies, politics and all things Jewish. Based in the north shore suburbs of Chicago, Barnett is married with two brilliant children and a dog.

What this book really did for me, though, was teach me to better understand and appreciate good scriptwriting. Author Barnett, whose own writing I found impressive, explains how the stories and the characters are developed and presented. I plan to watch the show more often, and will be looking and listening more closely for things that reveal motives and insights into the personalites of the characters. I think anyone reading this book will become a smarter viewer, not only of this series, but of other dramas.
In this Guide Barbara has transferred her passion and her deep knowledge of the show and I am sure all House fans will enjoy it as much as I did.
