    Those are wonderfully characterful drawings and it's great to see them actually being made. I love to draw and I wish I had that sureness of touch.

    The fluidity of his pen and ink drawings looks very special to me, really a delight. I understand that many are finding the books to be self-help also, a great little book.

    Thanks for introducing me to this book & author.

    I enjoyed both links & ordered a copy; hopefully I will be able to send it along to a friend after reading (but if not I may have to just order more.)

    An interesting man, I like his style which reminds me of both Matisse and the prehistoric cave drawings of horses, just a simple fluid line.

    I hope that you can let us know what you think about the book when it arrives STC, I have heard that it is inspirational.

    One good line is, aparently:

    'What is the greatest waste of time'


    'Comparing yourself to any other person'.

    A wonderful book. The art reminds me quite a bit of that of EH Shepard, as the writing does of AA Milne, at least in character, and in a positive way.

    This book has topped the best sellers list for many, many weeks, I am a little bit surprised but certainly pleased that a book which is really just a collection of pen and ink drawings, quite simple drawings at that, together with some thoughts and ideas should have such a strong appeal.

    As EoC suggests, there is a harking back to a simpler time with the style of Winnie the Pooh but I think that the target market for this new book is not children, perhaps it is for people who like to remember their childhood days.

    thnk, i like it.. I really like to read reviews or analyzes of novels, videos about books and everything related to this, after that I can understand whether I should even start reading this material. From the latter, I read https://studydriver.com/joy-luck-club-essay/ Joy Luck Club at Essays. The Joy Luck Club is Movie based on the novel of the same name. I highly appreciate the work on the article, light masterful presentation, all the main things are collected in separate reviews, it's cool. I recommend everyone to read it.

    This book is on the list of novels that I am preparing to order online. From friends, I understand that this is a great book that is worth reading. I usually read drama and adventure novels. I'm more attracted to these two themes than books with comedy or another type of theme.

    This is more like a reflection.... There are not many words, but mostly profound thoughts with drawing......

    How do I miss this?

    That style of sketches is absolutely wonderful. It is more powerful than a highly intricate drawings.
