    What an interesting concept for a book. I take it each story was only a few pages long.

    Oh! Where did you find this?? I’ve looked for months, and I have not been able to find a copy anywhere!

    That is one book I absolutely would want to have (once I have money for non-secondhand books)! :)

    Kathy, actually, each story was about a page long (some longer). It was a quick book, but I wanted to space it out because it was a bit repetitive.

    Lezlie, I have a great library! I can request any book in all the Chicago Northern Suburbs libraries without any charge. You can also get it from Amazon — $10 new or about $6 used.

    Penny, I enjoyed it.

    karlo, I hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks, Rebecca! I haven’t checked Amazon for a long time. I don’t think it was available when I looked before. I’ll check again! It looks like such a cool book!

    I love the idea of this book. I’ve been reading quite a bit lately about writing styles. I’m definitely going to check this one out. Thanks!

    Lezlie, I hope you enjoy it if you get it!

    Lisa, this one is fun! It doesn’t teach, it’s just his own practices in different styles.
