Bill Nye

This is my guide. I accept that I’ll never write anything as good as the introductory essay by E.B. White. It’s brilliant. As a guy, who is often asked to read aloud from radio scripts and teleprompter, I am a fan of the serial comma. Red, white, and blue comes out properly. Red, white and blue, seldom does.

Literary style is never more important to me than on a desert island, but more, the drawings, the correlations, the wit and color of this book would sustain me forever.
