“This book, in its form and in its content, seems almost without precedent. Its style flows directly from an intensity, an honesty, and a frankness which are rare. It is a poem, a sutra, a tract, a confession, a revelation, a guide to art and life . . . In my opinion this is not merely a good book, it is a great book”—Daniel Rhodes, Crafts Horizons
