Could be so much better, and where is the final edition?

carolyn rhea drapes From a technical POV, the book should provide a better TOC and index than what is provided. In addition, there are many American idioms used routinely in the scripts, which the author is either unaware of, or has decided not to research.

However, aside from the online script database, it is complete (through the seasons covered) with airing data, actor lists, and good synopses.

Tiffany I agree -- the book is a nice enough overview of each episode, but sometimes the overviews are *too* brief. Also, the "references" to pop culture are often merely sayings that were used in both the episode and some other piece of pop culture. Just because the other said it also doesn't mean The West Wing is quoting/misquoting/referring to it.

And since TWW has been over for a few years (*cry*) but there hasn't been a new edition since 2004, are we to think there won't be a Final Edition?
