We end with the very amusing The Tao of the Bat.
This book was written by philosophers well-acquainted with Batman, not only from the movies and TV shows, but from the comics, which offer a richer trove of stories and a deeper development of character. The works sited most often are Batman: Year One, Arkham Asylum (the book, not the game), and The Dark Knight Returns. I was surprised at how approachable and enjoyable this work was. I give it 5 stars out of 5.
