Summary
"Follows [Whedon's] development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes--which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)--to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series [to his work on the blockbuster The Avengers and home-shot Much ado about nothing]"--Amazon.com
