Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspiring This speech is wonderful and it's nice to have a copy to reread for a little pick-me-up, but the format of this book, in my opinion, is quite awful. The colours in some parts (when there's bright blue font on a bright red background) can be a pain to look at. It made me eyes feel really funny. Some pages were almost blank with one tiny line at the bottom. Some are written so that i ended up reading parts backwards and realized it didn't make sense so I had to try again. I just think that this format isn't the best only because of the way it was designed. It's nicer (and cheaper) just to listen to Neil Gaiman give the speech (just youtube it) that way you aren't confused and blinded with the added bonus of it actually being in his voice

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was really good advice! The illustrations could be better but the focus was on the text so perhaps it's better this way. Lovely though. Would recommend it!
