Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York by Sari Botton Reading these wonderful, insightful, and at times, deeply affecting essays --- with the exception of one essay I thoroughly disliked; the author, unlike the other essayists, spoke in the 3rd person with a smugness and arrogance that was very off-putting (to say the least) --- was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable reading experiences I’ve had this year. For anyone with the slightest curiosity or obsessive fascination with “the city that doesn’t sleep”, you won’t go wrong by reading “GOODBYE TO ALL THAT.”

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York I would like to point out that several of the one-star reviews here are by people who are targeting just one of the twenty-seven contributors. Some admit they haven't even read the book, but just want to taunt or hurt that writer. There are twenty-six other writers in the book, though. Putting it together and editing it took a tremendous amount of work, and I hope you will keep this in mind when seeing all those one-star reviews that have brought the average star rating so far down. BTW, I am not impartial - I edited this book. But I recommend you read it! I'm very proud of it.
