Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As quirky and outrageous as the main character of the popular television show, this collection of essays investigates the underlying issues on Fox’s series House. Growing in popularity thanks to its eccentric combination of CSI science, the medicine of ER, and an acerbic, pain-pill addict with a cane, House draws more than 12 million loyal viewers every week. This anthology explores issues including what makes House tick; why he really hired Foreman, Cameron, and Chase—and why is it so easy to believe he’s actually subjecting them to some sort of bizarre psychological testing—what House would be like as a heating and plumbing repairman; and why Wilson just won’t stop talking to him.

Synopsis:

What do you get when you combine CSI science, the medicine of ER, and an acerbic, pain pill addict with a cane? House MD.

In House Unauthorized: Vasculitis, Clinic Duty, and Bad Bedside Manner, the entire cast of the show is on the exam table: Wilson, Cuddy, Foreman, Cameron, Chase and particularly the cantankerous, but brilliant Dr. House.

What makes House tick? Why did he really hire Foreman, Cameron and Chase (and why is it so easy to believe hes actually subjecting them to some sort of bizarre psychological testing)? What would House be like as a heating and plumbing repairman? And why doesnt Wilson just stop talking to him already?

Answers to these questions are presented by a team of writers as talented as the team of doctors in House, MD. The prognosis? One heck of a good read.
