Goodreads asked Philip Temple:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Philip Temple No one best thing but a variety of things - independence, learning about oneself, one's relationships and the world around you through the process of researching and writing. Writing books for me has been one long exploration of both the physical world and the world of ideas.
