Review:

In this collection of essays by the world's most renowned creative-types--Ingmar Bergman, Maurice Sendak, Frank Zappa, and Maya Angelou--we learn time and again that the act of creation is a willingness to encounter the unknown. If we never risk losing control and wallow in the murky depths of our beings, how will we ever meet our potential? Laurence Olivier talks about going naked. Federico Fellini romances the virtue of passion. Mary Shelley speaks frankly about the genesis of Frankenstein. This is chicken soup for the soul of any creator.

From the Inside Flap:

An impressively diverse collection of writings by world-famous artists, musicians, writers, scientists, and filmmakers who have provided us with joy, illumination, and profundity through their craft. In this anthology we learn how they foster and harness the power behind their awesome gift, and we comprehend the responsibility that accompanies it.
