I brought this book home from the library because I was hoping that by reading the rejection of others, I would feel better about my own personal (job-related) rejections. Misery loves company, and all that. Based on the couple of other reviews I've skimmed, I am not alone in this. However, I didn't feel better. After finishing this, I felt even worse. It's sad, pathetic and disheartening to read page after page of letters relating to love gone wrong, and continual professional rejection ones. A few were funny, some of the ones (like the Jimi Hendrix army discharge letter) were interesting. After a while I began to feel horribly sad for Mr. Arthur Gonzalez, an artist who decorated many of his "sorry your art is good but just isn't right for us" notes. I sure hope he found a place to display and earn money, he seems talented.
