I really enjoy reading this book and continue to read passages in it frequently. As a writer, it is always inspiring to read what other writers have to say about their experiences and inspirations. These seem to be very honest, thoughtful and engaging, as well. It would be a great gift -- especially for a fan of any of these writers, as well as writers themselves.
