This book has bite-size descriptions of the daily work rituals of 161 creative people (authors, painters, composers). It is assembled from copious material in a blog by Mason Currey.
I really enjoyed this book. What I found interesting was the importance of routine. This book gives the lie to the idea of inspiration coming unbidden from above - it is very clear that the people profiled worked for a living. Reading this made me wonder what a similar book about entrepreneurs and business titans would read like. Presumably a lot more early starts and a lot less drinking.
A great book to read on the lavatory.
