Fact Checking 15 Oct. 2013
By Bruce Cleary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is a bad sign when an author identifies nonfiction as fiction: "he [Tom Wolfe] wrote his debut novel, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, late at night" [page 7 of Odd Type Writers]. It is bad not to know it was nonfiction and worse not to have checked.

Interesting, but dry writing 2 Feb. 2014
By Liora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love reading about habits of famous writers, and this book had a few great stories about that. However, I found the organization of the book lacking, and the author kept referring to earlier and later sections. Also, there was no conclusion-- the book ended abruptly.

The writing style was that of a 10th grade research paper: dry, awkward, and lacked enthusiasm. Not recommended.
A book doesn't have to be esoteric to be interesting and enlightening 29 Mar. 2014
By P. Laster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Here's an easy-to-read, makes-one-smile-and-occasionally-chuckle book on writers that adds interesting tidbits to writers lives. I don't believe it's meant to be the end-all, be-all of a scholarly attempt, as some seem to imply. From now on, I'll take a little more interest in Ray Bradbury: anyone who has to have ice cream is a soul-sibling to me.
Really enjoyed it 12 Dec. 2013
By Cristian Guajardo Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book it's extremely easy and entertaining to read. Actually, it felt too short. I loved the eccentricities and patters that the greatest mind in literature share.
All the details and intimate rituals are perfectly portrayed.
A really good book for aspiring writers, avid readers and curious minds.
An irresistible treat 7 Dec. 2013

Love these stories! Beautifully assembled. I was sorry when I turned the last page. The entire time I was reading it, I kept thinking of people I wanted to give it to.
