Wow. That’s all I can really say. This book is utterly fascinating. It’s written by a writer and a scientist, and aims to look into the science behind the drive to write, and writer’s block. So far, it’s mostly talked about hypergraphia (the compulsion to write) but it is continually tying it back into “normal” writerliness. It’s incredibly fascinating, and I’ve already learned a lot. There’s a good bit about temporal lobe epilepsy (something I believe my husband suffers from) so this is even more interesting to read.
So far, I am going to highly recommend this to anyone who might be interested in the human brain as it relates to being a writer. It’s truly amazing.
