Timpane is an absolute master at simply explaining the art and science of poetry, and what it can bring to life ... anyone's life. His direct and humorous style is easily understood, and will appeal to anyone from 14 to 90 years old. My suggestion: Start near the back where he explains how he fell in love with this form of expression as a young teen, on one particular day in California. You'll want to slip it under your teenager's pillow that very night, then run out and buy a copy for every one you love.

The best book ever written on poetry appreciation

This is quite possibly the best book ever written on poetry appreciation. I am an English teacher and have read more poetry appreciation texts than I can number, but this one is IT. It is informative, truthful, and, at times, absolutely hilarious. Written in a down-to-earth, conversational style, it will make you want to read all that poetry you hated or feared in school. As Timpane is fond of saying to his reader -- DO IT!
