I've been playing these songs for my family and friends, and the sheet music is spot on.
Kuruk Spencer
And reading through it got me to rewatch, listen to the commentary, and all in all remind myself how much I love Dr. Horrible and want a sequel.

Includes the sheet music for every song, original lyrics, commentaries by Joss & Jed as well as some of the actors.

My review of the book for Film.com

[…]

It's been almost three years since the writer's strike and the release of arguably the most wonderful project to have emerged from that tumultuous period in Hollywood history. (What else did the writers strike produce? Oh yeah. Transformers 2. Point made.) Thanks to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, we have not only a great web series we can watch over and over, but toys, soundtracks, musical commentary, and endless cosplay to geek out over. And this week, a brand-new book to add to the list: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: The Book. And that's exactly what it is. A book. Of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. It's pretty badass.

Normally with this kind of publication, the bulk is made up of art and photos -- great to own as a fan, sure, but not practical in any way. But Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: The Book, much like Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, the web series, isn't your typical book ... slash ... web series. No, yeah, that makes sense. That sentence definitely was cohesive and was not nonsensical. Oh god. I've been reading and watching so much Whedon-speak, I can almost feel myself becoming a Whedon ... self-deprecation! Meta jokes! Sonheim-esque musical interludes! Attempts at jokes awkwardly placed in the middle of an article!

Now that that's out of my system, back to the topic at hand. To start, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: The Book, features both the original shooting script and the complete sheet music, which I was pretty astounded to discover. I was expecting page after page of photos and behind-the-scenes commentary, like most other coffee table books of this nature, but was thrilled to find out it's so much more.

I'm giving it 5 stars, because the contents are just so fantastic! Loved the behind the scenes stories, especially the portion with Shawna Trpcic on the costuming for the Blog! The behind-the-scenes photographs are lots of fun too! Many of the pages that are one-sheet pictures would be framable, if you wanted to buy two copies and cut up one copy! About 2/5ths of the book is sheet music, which I wish was a little larger, they could have maximized the size, but it will serve it's purpose! I can't wait to dust off the piano and guitars for it! Includes exactly what you'd expect of sheet music, the actual notes and chords above as well, with fret suggestions for the guitarists.

The bad part, 10% of my book looks like somebody took light sandpaper to the pages and rubbed it around some. Or, more likely, when the pages were loose or something, someone swirled them around on a table like you would "go fish" with cards. It makes some of the pages look really crappy, obviously. I still gave the book 5 stars though as you can see, because it doesn't deserve a bad review for having a print job, that's on the assembler! I plan on contacting Amazon to see what they can do about this.

Do you listen to the Dr. Horrible Sing-A-Long Blog album to point that your co-workers/spouse/friends are ready to kill you? Do you know the words to all the songs? Do you try to introduce this gem of a movie to everyone you know?

Then THIS is the book for you. It's full of behind the scenes information including costuming and locations. It includes all the sheet music - YES - all the sheet music. The art of the book is fun, colorful and well done which makes the book even more entertaining to read.

I highly recommend this book as a lover of all things Dr. Horrible.

This book is an addition to the film. If you are a fan, you must have it. This book contains the uncut script and music sheet for all of the Dr. Horrible songs. The sheet music sheet is great if you like playing. You can also find the actors of the film in this book: Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, and Simon Helberg.

I really enjoyed going through this Dr. Horrible book: lots of pictures, comments, and the behind-the-scenes stories.

If you don't remember Dr. Horrible, then I'll give you some clues: Joss Whedon's film tells the story of Billy, (Dr Horrible), a supervillain who wants to beat superhero Captain Hammer and take over the world. He has also a crush on a gril he met in the laundromat (Penny).
This 45-minute long film was originally released online in 3 parts and it became an instant hit. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog has won numerous awards, including an Emmy, a Hugo Award and a People's Choice Award and was named by Time magazine as one of the Top 50 Inventions of the year.

I bought this as an impulse buy right after watching Dr. Horrible for the 12th time. But I was not disappointed; this book has everything from in-character commentary, full lyrics, and it even has sheet music in the back. (And not just a few pages, seriously the last 1/3rd of the book is purely sheet music, for every single song.) It's a fun look at the making of this great web series, and would be a great addition for any Whedon/Dr. Horrible fan.

My daughter is a HUGE Dr. Horrible fan - so much so that even though I myself haven't seen all of the episodes, I know several of the songs and lines from the series.

We purchased this book for her for Christmas and she was thrilled when she opened it. She has hardly put it down. She loves the behind-the-scenes photos and notes, and especially can't wait to sit down to "officially" learn the music from the songs at the piano. The fact that the script is word-for-word is fun as well, and she has been at the computer, watching the show and following along (yes, she does have a life, but this is one of her favorite shows, along with Doctor Who - she just claims to be a bit of a nerd).

This is really a must-have if you are a Dr. Horrible fan, or if you have one in your life.
