I wouldn't recommend this book for someone trying to become a writer. I'm sure it would be fine for that but there are probably better books on that score. This book excels on two points: first it was interesting to hear the context of some of the works that have become a part of the culture. Second I love hearing the story of a person who loves what they do and that's where this story really shines. If that's what you're looking for I'd recommend it.
This was a really rough listen. It was just platitude after platitude and false choices like, would you rather be stuck in traffic or drive an eco-friendly car and so forth for hours and hours. This would be a good listen for someone who is left leaning and not too interested in subjecting arguements to critical thinking.
