Editorial Reviews

"Humanity is overrated." Dr. Gregory House's pronouncement wasn't just a momentary peeve; it represents his philosophy of life. The main character on Fox's long-running House, M.D. series knows that he doesn't reside in a just universe and he refuses to beautify his opinions, medical or otherwise, with niceties. This official guide unfolds the conflicting characters, evolving dramas, and fascinating cases of this award-winning audience favorite. A perfect primer to our secret guilty pleasure. (Hand-selling tip: The series has just been renewed for a seventh season.)
