Jim Henson: The Biography

I'm about 3/4 of the way through this and am really enjoying it. It is inspiring to read about someone so creative and dedicated to creativity, storytelling, education, and new technology. Jim Henson was as hard working as he was talented and he inspired and encouraged the people he worked with. Really a great read for anyone who loves Muppets!

Sounds like a good read. Also if you want to know more about the Muppets culture he left behind, "Being Elmo" is a great watch (although it's really sad to know what happened after that documentary came out).

In case you hate Elmo, don't worry: Very little about "Being Elmo" is actually about Elmo.
