    It has been established the world over (if not, then it should be) that Neil Gaiman is one of the most prolific writers that we have, and we must never forget that. In fact, we must cherish what we have every single day and celebrate him by reading more of him, but obviously, day after...

    Over the years, Chris Riddell has illustrated a few pieces of speeches and essays by Neil Gaiman, to tremendous effect. This brings four of those pictorial essays together into one lovely, small tome, that discusses art, inspiration, and why we need libraries. ...

    Gaiman says, "Make Good Art. I'm serious." I say, "Read more Gaiman. I'm serious." . . This is a cute little book with Neil Gaiman's advice on reading, writing, following your dreams, importance of libraries and librarians, why kids should read, and respecting art, and the illust...

    Das war irgendwie klar, die Vorfreude wurde voll bestätigt. Ein kleines feines Buch mit klaren und verständlichen Weisheiten von Neil Gaiman und grandios illustriert von Chris Riddell. Wenn man die Werke von beiden mag und gerne liest, dann wird man sich hier erneut verlieben. Das...

    Somehow I failed to take in that this was a collection bringing together previously published work but that?s entirely my own fault. However the words feel just as relevant now than when I first read them and it?s great to see each piece illustrated by Riddell. He?s right that wo...

    I honestly had no idea what Neil Gaiman was up to this time around. I just saw the title, the cover page, felt a surge of attraction rising within me as I focused on the sharp pencil rising from the fist, downloaded the book on Kindle, made a cup of tea, and sat on my recliner to satia...

    Normally I don't read motivational or self-help books, but this time I didn't really know what's coming + I can never "reject"a book, if Neil Gaiman wrote that. The book gives some advice to people who are doing arts or plan to. Although there was nothing new, I totally enjoyed the boo...

    Although I have read these words of Neil Gaiman's before, they are made even more beautiful and touching when illuminated by Riddell's artwork. Two of my favorite creative minds collaborating to inspire others is a treasure. ...

    I love Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell and will basically buy anything they do together. The marriage of Riddell's illustrations with the wise words of Neil Gaiman here have given me a huge creative boost and I feel artistically charged up for the first time in ages. Highly recommend! ...

    What a gorgeous, sweet & very very wise little book. Neil Gaiman is someone that should definitely be read & listened to, so if you haven?t already, why not? If you haven?t bought copies of his books for all the young people in your life, why not? Get out there today and re...

    "Make good art. I?m serious." This is a collection of four essays, each forceful and energetic, that directly address why it is so important to read and write and, more importantly, they impress upon you why children should be doing it too. This is not new material but has ...

    The answer is not 42 after all. The answer to life, the universe and everything is: MAKE GOOD ART. Which of course may well be what Douglas Adams did, hitchhiking his way through the universe in a bombastic show of creative power. So 42 and "MAKE GOOD ART" could be seen as synon...

    Oh my goodness, I l?ve this book! I read it on the work commute home and am SO impressed with it. One of those books that makes you believe that good things can happen. Imagine a world devoid of beauty. Without colour. No artworks to adorn walls or office desks. No words of wis...

    I have enjoyed seeing Chris Riddell illustrate various Neil Gaiman poems and other writings online and was very pleased to get some of them collected in this book. I wish they had included The Day The Saucers Came. Riddell?s illustrations for that were wonderful. ...

    A very quick read (I just read this in work, don't tell anyone) featuring some of Neil Gaiman's wisest words paired with Chris Riddell's fantastic illustrations. Neil's advice basically boils down to 'do the thing that only you can do, and do it well' and it's a wonderful read. Buy one...
