Dan, Dan,The Journal Man

 I do not often - if ever - recommend that you buy a book. This time out I make an exception for this very small and unusual book, just 5 inches wide x 6" high. It only has 118 pages which are all hand-written and of which you can safely ignore the last 32 which are, frankly, fillers to make it look thicker. But at 1p plus Amazon's £2.80 postal charge it really IS a 2nd hand bargain. It was first printed in 1999.

What Dan Price has created here, apart from its unusual format, is what I consider to be one of the most practical, effective and down to earth books about starting and keeping a journal. No psychological or philosophical bulldust here. He tells it like it is.

If you want to find out the basics, or need a kick up your fulcrum to get back into the journaling mode, this will fit the bill.

And no, in case you are wondering, I was not paid for this endorsement ... this blog is always ad-free. 

To give you a taster, here are the first 4 pages which show you what to expect. Sorry old chap if this breaches your copyright!
