A good acquaintance of mine recently released a new book recently, and it’s pretty good. It’s a collection of his best blog posts from his past seven years as a blogger. I’ve been a follower of Gus Sanchez’s blog pretty much since I began blogging and if you’re a writer you should follow him, too–his insights are sharp and his musings are funny.
I picked up a sample of the book and his writing is as sharp and funny as ever.
