Overview

'Harry Potter for Nerds' is a collection of the most exciting ideas from twelve Hogwarts Professors about the world's best selling books. Travis Prinzi, author of 'Harry Potter and Imagination' and webmaster at The Hog's Head, has tapped his Potter Pundit friends in Fandom and at better universities around the country for their insights about the literary magic of the seven novels, from their ring composition to the symbolism of the planets, from the Dante, Spencer, and MacDonald echoes to exploration of the meanings of magic and technology. Profound and far-reaching as these ideas are, the essays are all written in accessible style and tone. Serious readers of Harry Potter will delight in the conversation each chapter offers with another lover of the Hogwarts Saga and its greater depths.

I probably would have picked this book up even if it hadn't been required for a graduate course I'm taking (I'm a fan, an academics, and a lit geek). Good reading for anyone who wants more out of Harry Potter than just the story.

Must read for every Harry Potter fan who wants to delve into the depths of the story beyond the basic plot.
