That's it. Mr. Miller examined his own life, realised he wasn't crazy about the story he was writing for himself, and set out to write a better one. And he wrote this book about writing a better story. And it's amazing. It'll make you think. It'll inspire you to go out and do likewise.
I borrowed this book from the library, and decided against buying a copy (for now). And the reason is: If I owned it, I would give it away to a friend in short order. And then I'd buy myself another copy, and I'd give it away, and so on, until I went bankrupt buying copies for everyone I know. Seriously, that's how good I think this book is. (I said on Facebook that I want to buy copies for my 100 closest friends, and that's not a joke; I really do want to. I currently have a queue forming on my FB page in case I'm left an inheritance of some sort and decide to follow through.)
And so I urge you, my friends, to make haste to your local library and demand to read this immediately.
Have you read it? Did you like it? What was your favourite (or least favourite) part?
