"This well-researched, clearly written, and informative view of The West Wing will be appreciated by both media scholars and TV aficionados alike. McCabe's book follows in the televisual 'Tradition of Quality' exemplified by the primetime program itself. Combining behind-the-scenes insights with an integrative cultural studies approach, the volume focuses on the television industry, as well as on the show's political and thematic relevance, televisual auteurism, and the aesthetic dimensions of narrative, characters, and TV stylistics. This volume could serve as a work of scholarship, a course textbook, or just a great read for fans of the best drama on network television." (Frank P. Tomasulo, guest professor of television studies in the Department of Film at Sarah Lawrence College)

Book is worth 5 stars. Narration a bit robotic.
Would you listen to The West Wing: TV Milestones again? Why?
Yes. I loved The West Wing and the book did a good job of telling of it's making and it's successes. The narration is very robotic, but not so much as to ruin the book.
What did you like best about this story?
The stories about the show I didn't know.
Did Gary D. MacFadden do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Not quite as well as Hal did in 2001 A Space Odyssey.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
