Jim Henson: The Biography by Brian Jay Jones
“Simply, Jim Henson’s greatest legacy will always be Jim himself: the way he was, and the way he encouraged and inspired others to be—the simple grace and soft-spoken dignity he brought to the world (and expected, sometimes fruitlessly, of others), as well as his faith in a greater good that he believed he and his fellow inhabitants of the globe were capable of.”
Jim Henson was certainly one-of-a-kind. He was the creative genius behind one of the most enduring entertainment powerhouses. His exceptional life is heralded in this comprehensive biography, written with the generous cooperation of the Henson family. Beginning with his early life in Mississippi, the book details the ups and downs of the life through to his sadly sudden death in 1990. While certainly far from perfect, it is clear that Jim Henson was a great man and his legacy will live on through his tremendous achievements.
