Reactions:

 
“The man has 40 pages of listed references, so this book isn’t simply some collection of fan boy riffing or fact less, opinion fueled blogging. Langley’s book is a fun, fascinating read and one I’ll go back to again and again. This is a must have for any Batman fan!” – Beardyjin

“The real pleasure in reading this book is that it’s not just comic books and pop psychology but a primer for understanding real mental issues, and why some people are the way they are. It also explains why Batman only works inside of the universe he’s in. The book is excellent.” – RaymondGW

“Langley explores the effects that the stories have on the psychology of fans including discussions of Jungian archetypes, the hero’s journey and plausible escapism. Once you reach the end of the book, you come away with a greater appreciation of the impact that Batman in particular and comics in general have on popular culture.” – Gamal

“The majority of the book is excellent and a very good read for even the Bat fans that have only seen the recent movies. The downsides are when the book gets heavy into the psychology referring different theories for the many psych gurus. Overall a read well worth the money even if there are some pretty heavy points.” – Tyler

“It’s organized well, has good information. The writing style is not quite as engaging as I’d hoped. It was hard for me to push my way through the beginning of the book to get to the examination of the characters.” – Jill
