I bought this book in September 2007 and started to really read it in October 2008. This is one book that you cannot read in a rush. Every now and then the writer's antics may make you groan and wish that she could just quickly get to the point
rather than going back to her jungle drums recitals and the likes. Nevertheless, it is still a fun read and when she is not being her neurotic self, "the instructions on writing and life" are pretty wise too.
