“Jenkins is one of us: a geek, a fan, a popcult packrat. He's also an incisive and unflinching critic. His affection for the subject and sharp eye for 'what it all means' are an unbeatable combination. This is fascinating, engrossing and enlightening reading.”
-Cory Doctorow,author of Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town and co-editor of Boing Boing
“Jenkins persuasively argues in favor of taking the fan’s perspective in analyzing television-- and this is the cornerstone of the new turn in Cultural Studies.”
-Claremont Review of Books
