The book was nice, in an informative way. The interviews were a little lengthy, but filled with insight into the minds and work of different writers all leaders in their own genre and writing style. I wasn’t too keen on the book, but it wasn’t a horrible read. While it wasn’t my particular cup of Joe, I believe any new aspiring author would benefit from reading the interviews and seeing how good intellectually stimulating Interviews should go. I believed, when completing the book, that this is an unintentional tool that can be used as a platform in guidance of how fluent and substantial interviews are and how they can benefit the writer. As I have said, each interview held a candidate very much of their own league, I particularly liked the first interview of Julia Cameron and felt that that had been the perfect lead in interview for the book.

At the end of each interview, she always ask her guests for further information about their work, webpages, blogs, new books, etc., which makes this book a handy guide that I will turn to repeatedly.
