This is a fine book . . . The subject matter is both timely and extremely pertinent; the influence of what TWILIGHT ZONE and its composers did with music continues to be felt in the more musical-savvy of today's television programming, and the use of music across the show's five season remains a textbook example of how music can be used to enhance and interact with what is happening on the screen and felt through its storytelling.
