My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An absorbing and educational collection with writers from the 2000 Adelaide Festival of Arts. The majority of advice within is on-point and sensible, even 17 years after the fact, and most of it is delivered with a refreshing lack of pompousness and self-aggrandizement. A worthy addition to any writer’s shelf, and valuable for simply dropping in and out of or ploughing right through. Inspirational and essential.
