    I was quite fascinated to learn more about Rod Serling" I now know he was far more than just the creator of one of my favourite anthology shows. I yearn for the return of that style and am hopeful of the new series capturing some of that intrigue of the show I grew up with. Serling's story is one of bravery and integrity and is quite admirable in that manner. If you want to know more about one of cult television's most important voices then this is an absolute must read, even if you just want to know more about how television programming was shaped in the early days" this is a fascinating read. Highly recommended. Read Full Review
