This book is not for the casual reader, but its insights into the role of the physical library in the past and future will be very interesting to librarians, library students, or serious library fans. My personal favorite essay covers the role of the library in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, although the article on British Military Libraries was also quite fascinating. I'd recommend it to most "library people."
