WOW. This book blew me away. I wanted to highlight every page, because every page had sparkling gems of wisdom that stunned me.

Especially as a writer/creative artist, "Excess of Being" is moving and inspiring. Auerbach cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a creator -- indeed, of what it means to be human.
