really liked it

In most books, we're lucky to get to glean from the experiences and wisdom of one person, but Ross's unique approach to the memoir offers the creative insights of dozens of artists, working in all sorts of media. Woven throughout is the undercurrent of creativity: its risks, its costs, and its rewards. Ross's unique creative burden - familial and personal - bring an interesting spin to the tale, but still offers a reflective mirror in which anyone on the artist's road will be able to see a familiar face. We all struggle with the dark sides of the craft, with the things we have to give up to remain committed, but also with the yawning darkness whenever we turn away from that path. Ross has given us all a message: we're not alone in our amazing, lonely, difficult, rewarding journey. He's walking the road with us, and if he can do it, so can we.
