When I was asked if i was interesting in writing a book with 300 other people, my first thought was - that's impossible. Of course, my second thought was - I love doing impossible things, so of course I was in. I really couldn't see how it would work, and it's an absolute testament to fine management and creativity that it was all brought together into a fantastic book.
The story has remained coherent and is easy to read, despite the disparate writing styles. There are a lot of thought provoking passages which is unsurprising given the number of personalities, beliefs and points of view represented.
I would absolutely recommend this book, not only as a good story, an interesting experiment and a massively successful project, but also to be part of something great - proof that 300 people from all over the world, who've never met, can get together and create something beautiful.
