A definite must-read!
I’ve started reading some of the profiles and they are truly amazing.
The book includes such profiles as
ISAAC ASIMOV - Author of 188 books
GEORGE BALANCHINE - Artistic director of the New York City Ballet
JULES FEIFFER - Screenwriter for “Popeye the Sailor”
GEORGE LANG - Owner of the Cafe des Artistes
Amazing people. Amazing stories. Amazing writing. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Go here for more informations, and here or here for the book itself.
p.s. - I hope it is as good as "Journalistas - 100 Years of the Best Writing and Reporting by Women Journalists" (this one not for free, though)

Around the time of my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, I turned to my father at the dinner table one night and said, "It's amazing, Dad — 50 years, and you never once had an affair. How do you account for that?"
He replied simply, "I can't drive."
Watching the governor of South Carolina cry like a little girl because his sexy e-mails got forwarded to his local newspaper, the State, made me wonder whether the real secret to a lasting marriage lies in limiting your means of escape.
