La única razón por la que le di cuatro estrellas es porque incluyeron un ensayo del insufrible acomplejado de Richard Rodríguez. No leí su ensayo. Me niego rotundamente a desperdiciar ni un segundo de mi vida leyendo las tonterías que escribe Rodríguez. De ahí en fuera todo muy bien, todos los otros autores son tremendamente buenos.

I knew going into it that it only contained samples of writing... But I was left wanting more! So my reading list grows ;)

This book was a mix of absolutely fantastic pieces and some bland trudging ones. The strong pieces are so great it's worth the few misses inside. Beautifully lingual (about language) through beautiful language and imagery.

How to Tame a Wild Tongue
