Pratchett drips wit and wisdon and each article in this collection, often seasoned with a portion of righteous anger. I can't say I always agree with him, but I enjoy each trip through his thoughts.
I'm not sure I'd read an equivalent book by anyone else, but boy was this worth it.
The book ranges from humour to wise words on many topics , ,a life full of a passion for words ,books and writing the magnificent Discworld series for which he has brought untold delight to millions of devoted readers.
His thoughts on the weirdness of the world , Banana Daiquiris , computers, champion of hats and Orang-utans , to the injustices of his illness that he fought to the end .and the right to a Good Death .
Read this book ..he was a much loved - and is a much missed - figure ...Thanks Terry !! ...Mind How You Go .............!! ..x
