More than 500 pages in three days (or better, nights). This is the best non-fiction book I have ever read. It's not a behind-the-scenes book, it's not a biography, it's not a "how-to-write" book and it's not a collection of letters. It's all of these combined, but much, much more. And more than "behind-the-scenes", it's a "behind-the-mind". It's like a journey in the mind of Russell T. Davies. And it's not what you'd expect. At all.
