5.0 out of 5 stars the genius of Childish is..., 21 Oct. 2008
...he exists in a world free of limits, he was never trained because in some ways he refused to be trained, refused to have the rough edges knocked off. It is true he can't spell but that is down to his dyslexia, these poems are printed in thier orignal form with spelling mistakes intact, please discount any review that reveres Emin over Childish, bitter fools will always be bitter fools and those two were once in love, the venom that came from both Childish and Emin has no place in the review of literature and should not colour anyones opinion towards the other (but when dealing in fact both owe the other more than they're prepared to admit, in Emin Childish found a muse (of sorts) and in Childish Emin found a template for her future damnation). These poems are completely honest and moving at times, the man has a great wit and is very much the self made genius a great many proclaim him to be.
