My response to and rating of Jim Henson: The Biography was far more subjective and biased than any other book in recent memory. I suspect many people interested in reading this biography would be in the same boat.

While Jones presented a comprehensive chronological narrative, at times the writing was rather dry. I guess since Henson's biggest priority was work, it made sense that the focus of the biography was on the business side of his life.

"When I was young," wrote Jim, "my ambition was to be one of the people who makes a difference in this world. My hope still is to leave this world a little bit better for my being there."
And he did (p. 490).

Highly recommended to all fans of Henson's work.
