The same holds true for a teacher and an author. Not only is Margo Berman talented and brilliant, she's also totally committed to her students. She writes and teaches with passion and enthusiasm. And almost superhuman energy. For those who can't be in her class, this book is the next best thing. She writes the way she teaches.
