I'm going to do a mass review of the run of good fiction I've encountered recently and so I am skipping ahead to review Hugh MacLeod's Ignore Everybody.
MacLeod is a cartoonist who used the power of the web to generate a following. What a rare and unusual story, huh? He is not a writer. This book, which was largely previously released for free online are suggestions for how to be creative. Forty chapters in all, all of them EXTREMELY brief. Take a look for yourself. There's the first twelve chapters, all on one big webpage. I also don't much care for his cartoons. That's more of a matter of taste than anything. But I really cannot recommend this book and am going back and changing my recommendation to an "X".
