Synopsis

The popular "Muggles and Magic" has been substantially revised and updated to feature more exciting, up-to-the-minute information. This edition includes: a photo essay on the famous Harry Potter-themed retail store, Whimsic Alley; a first-hand account of J. K. Rowling's celebrated August 2006 book reading in New York (with full-colour photos); a new section on Harry Potter fans, with an article written by Steve Van Ark, webmaster of the Harry Potter Lexicon and popular speaker at Harry Potter conventions; and a new introduction by Edward Kern, author of "The Wisdom of Harry Potter" (Prometheus Books, 2003). Including this third edition of "Muggles and Magic", George Beahm has written more than twenty books.

HASH(0x9754921c) von 5 Sternen An incomplete and lop-sided guide to the world of Harry Potter 7. Dezember 2005
Von fellicity - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As an adult fan of the Harry Potter series, I am fascinated by Ms. Rowling and her talent as a writer which brought this magical world to life. When I purchased 'Muggles and Magic,' I looked forward to reading more about the author and the pop culture surrounding this phenomenon.

After reading Beahm's publication, I have to say that I'm disappointed. Essentially, this book is a collection of articles highlighting Harry Potter/J.K. Rowling facts that have been featured elsewhere. (I.e. newspapers, magazines, online, etc.) While some of the articles have good information about Rowling, there were times where reading them made me feel uncomfortable. I wondered how Ms. Rowling, a famously private person who is not afraid to speak up to defend her character, would feel about the clippings that delve into her painful past. She makes a point to dissuade such stories on her personal Web page, and reading them in this "fan" book seemed more like reading gossip than fact.

Other articles in the book simply have fraudulent and outdated information that Beahm hasn't bothered to research and update, such as that Dan Radcliffe has bowed out of all of the films after 'Goblet of Fire' (he hasn't, and is telling the press he's signed on for 'Order of the Phoenix'), and that J.K. Rowling's Web site doesn't feature a F.A.Q. (it does, here: [...]

Another problem I had with this book was the higgledy-piggledy way it seems to have been put together. There's no real rhyme or reason to the selections, and the collection doesn't flow but rather jerks, such as from an article about owning owls as pets to another about Joanne's involvement in a cancer charity.

Beahm is clearly a fan and I can tell he had fun putting this little book of Potter/Rowling odds and ends together. Had a little more research been done and a bit more time spent on fashioning the information together, this would be a fleshed-out companion worthy of the world of Harry Potter.

HASH(0x97549270) von 5 Sternen Good Book 17. Juli 2005
Von Harry-isawiz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book to be a bit outdated, but nonetheless helpful. Written in 2004, the book does not touch upon any of the new concepts such as HBP Book 6, but this guide is a nice review to the first books in the series.

I personally consider Breahm and author Daniel Lawrence of the new ULTIMATE UNOFFICIAL HALF-BLOOD PRINCE BOOK 6 TRIVIA BOOK to be the top sources of HP info for fans. I would suggest reading this guide and then immediately reading the best-selling ULTIMATE BOOK 6 TRIVIA BOOK by Daniel Lawrence to gain even more insights and knowledge on the series and Movie 4 GOF.

HASH(0x975496a8) von 5 Sternen not quite up to snuff 1. Januar 2005
Von Shawn Farrell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While the author does a decent job summarizing someone else's work, the look and content of this title is a clear attempt to cash in on the popularity of the books and films. Within its pages, you'll find reproductions of "Teen Beat" style magazine covers featuring the movies' stars, and quickly see that the material covered is far from comprehensive. A much better choice for a book of this nature is Fionna Boyle's "A Muggle's Guide to the Wizarding World," also available through amazon.com.

HASH(0x97549a74) von 5 Sternen Just ok, most info is available online 23. Oktober 2005
Von Jynx980 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's not a bad book but nothing really stands out about it either. It has a lot of information on J.K with quotes, background, and a bit of a biography. I did learn some new information about her but most of it is already known; single mother, thought of Harry Potter on a train, wrote in a café.

Books 1-5 and the first three movies are covered with reviews and general information. A detailed cast and credits are listed for the movies. This book has a lot of reviews and quotes from editors and publishers, it gets overwhelming at times.

The book also contains 70 or so black and white drawings from artist Tim Kirk. I didn't care much for them but they added to the book with the theme of wizards, creatures, and magic. They adorn each new section not unlike the Potter books illustration at a new chapter.

One useful thing is the "concordance" (list) of people places and things in the Potter universe. It's about 80 pages long and was what I bought the book for initially. Although the info is good, there is information available on the web for free and is much more detailed and easy to navigate. The sites (The Leaky Cauldron, Mugglenet, and the Harry Potter Lexicon) are even mentioned in the web sites section of the book.

There are also some omissions and errors. When he first starts to go over the books all the the entries have an "about the book" section except for Prisoner of Azkaban. Some of the entries for this section are a page or more long, it seems odd to leave this one out.

Other errors have to do with names like the Dursley's in Egypt when it should be Weasley's, Uncle Dudley, things of that nature. Not terrible errors but still annoying.

There are 27 color glossy pictures in the middle of the book. Most are of filming locations, a couple of the books, some of JK, one of Dan Radcliffe, and the rest are of owls. It was nice but I would of liked to see more.

Overall this book was ok. I learned some new things but most of it was basic stuff and a lot of quotes and reviews. Its a bit long at close to 400 pages so children may tire of it quite quickly. I would not recommend this book. Vast amounts of information are available online and the amount quotes and reviews make this a tough read.

HASH(0x97549b58) von 5 Sternen A Ten Year Old's Perspective 5. Juli 2004
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoyed reading this book. It had lots of useful information about J.K. Rowling in the large biography, and I finally found out what the J.K. stood for. But my favorite part by far was the Muggle's guide to Harry Potter. It had a lot of stuff I didn't remember, and new stuff I didn't know about. The Guide was interesting and full of information that I was looking for, such as how many knuts equal a sickle, and how much it costs to ride the Knight Bus. So basically it was a very original book.
