'Harry Potter Smart Talk' is a Greatest Hits Collection from the Potter Pundits. the three literary mavens on the wildly popular PotterCast of The Leaky Cauldron. Four transcripts of Harry Potter fandom's favorite podcasts along with two talks each from James Thomas, Travis Prinzi, and John Granger make this a reading experience that will delight the casual Hogwarts reader and 'wow' even the most serious Potter maniac. From the secret code of Harry Potter names - why all those doubled letters and initials - to the real world Muggles and Seekers of the English Civil War that are the historical backdrop to Harry's adventures, with sidetrips to discuss Christmas at Hogwarts and the esoteric meaning of Luna Lovegood's lovable lunancy, 'Harry Potter Smart Talk' is a must-have guide to the world's best selling books by three geeks who love to laugh almost as much as they love a great book. The Perfect Gift for your favorite Potter-phile! As Melissa Anelli, author of 'Harry, A History,' wrote in the Foreword to 'Smart Talk,' "here is the Ivory Tower in Hagrid's Hut!"

I would say that only a true potterhead could truly appreciate this. It is really a great book and a wonderful feeling that again, only a true HP fan could feel is given off from each turn of the page(:N The bad reviews are probably not from true Potterheads or they didn't give it a chance (after the first two pages it gets better.. don't be so ignorant and at least tryy to handle three.) Again, not reccomending this to people who are new to HP or aren't truly Potterheads. Thanks (:N
