Jim Henson: a Biography, by Brian Jay Jones

Jim Henson: The Biography Jim Henson: the Biography, by Brian Jay Jones, 585 pages

This is a pretty thorough biography of Jim Henson, Muppet creator and all-around awesome artist.  I recommend it to anyone who would like to know more about the man, but I will say that I had the following issues with it:  1. There needed to be way more illustrations- you can't just describe a work of art- show it! 2. This book is solid hero-worship; Jim was obviously a lady's man who cheated on his wife, but anything even slightly unflattering is really just glossed over.  Alot of interesting information here, though.
