The View from the Cheap Seats:selected nonfiction/Neil Gaiman/507 pgs.
This is a collection of essays by Neil Gaiman on a variety of topics: authors that inspired his writing; speeches given at various award ceremonies; forewords to other authors' works; etc. One of my favorite sections of the book was made into a separate book, and illustrated by Chip Kidd: Make Good Art. I have never been a big science fiction or fantasy fan, but after reading this book, I feel that I have a better understanding and appreciation for these genres. I can't recommend this book highly enough--Neil Gaiman has acquired another fan!
