Book Reviews

  • Jack Kerouac's process for "On the Road" is one of my favorite FAST Writing examples. First, he spent seven years collecting experiences. Then, he turned all those experiences into a book in just 21 days — all on a 120-foot typewriter scroll. (h/t @BostonGlobe) to Tweet
  • In honor of World Book Day, here are some of the best books I've read: - "Fictions" (Borges) - "Star Maker" (Stapledon) - "Battle Cry of Freedom" (McPherson) - "Godel, Escher, Bach" (Hofstadter) - "Guns, Germs, and Steel" (Diamond) - "The Road" (McCarthy) - "Aztec" (Jennings)Link to Tweet
