This book is a collection of essays and interviews with Hayao Miyazaki, head of Studio Ghibli.
While the book gives interesting insights into the methodology Mr. Miyazaki uses to create his films and run his studio, it also provides details regarding his opinions on many topics. Personally I don't agree with many of the things he says; but I found many of the chapters and passages in this book to be absolutely inspirational and interesting (not only on the stuff he says about animation and film making, but also on his own opinions about life in general).
It is a good read, but since we are talking about interviews and essays, many things are repeated a few times and that can be slightly frustrating. Other than that I think it's great.
