"This book is a collection of essays on philosophical questions raised in the Harry Potter series. It would be a good adjunct for anyone taking a college level philosophy course, to see a practical application of using philosophy to aid in understanding literature - or the use of literature to understand philosophy!" -- Priscilla Herrington

"Having read most of the other 'Potter Parasite' books, I started reading this book with the printed words filing through the front of my head while plotting the scathing review in the back. A quarter of the way through, I couldn't put it down. It actually makes thinking and logic fun. It makes broccoly taste like chocolate. Thanks!" -- James Girard
"As soon as I saw this book I had to get it. Having been impressed with other books in this series (The Simpsons, The Matrix and Seinfeld) I knew this would be a great way to apply the things I learned in Philosophy to today's culture. If you're a student of Philosophy, like me, then this book may help you to clear up things that your professor can not. Since they take things like Time-travel and apply them to the Harry Potter world, you can grasp a better understanding while not losing the essence of what is being discussed. Even if you're not a student of philosophy this book is a great read. It'll provide hours of entertainment and give you great insight into how Philosophy can be applied to situations." --  Christopher J. Sugar
