While much of the content was interesting, I found Horowitz's writing style and the beginning and end of each essay fairly repetitive.

I recommend this to writers and artists, and generally anyone in a creative rut.

Some chapters (and the perspectives of the guest walkers in those chapters) definitely engaged me & grabbed me more than others, which I suppose was to be expected, but overall this was an enjoyable reminder of all the stories that surround us if we only look for them and "take the longcut."

Parts I really enjoyed. Others where it went really deep into the science I enjoyed less.
