read the full article here, written by Film4.com editor Catherine Bray, who has been a real champion of the book.
The book was published at the beginning of August and set out to tell readers everything I know about the subject after 23 years of experience and over 1000 interviews. And hooray, it's sold very well.
One thing I'm pleased about, is that not one single reader has had to use my Formspring Guarantee. In case you're unaware, I included a Formspring URL at the end of the book, in case anyone had questions unanswered by the book itself. A couple of people have mentioned additional topics they'd quite like to see in a future edition, but as of yet, no-one has used that Formspring account. Excellent.
As I say in that Spectator piece, I will very probably increase the price of the book come Autumn, reflecting the niche nature of the topic which the book covers. So if you're interested in the topic of interviewing people, now's the time to grab it while it's still the price of a London pint!

If you've purchased the book and would like to write a review on Amazon UK or Amazon US, then I would dearly love you to do so. Also feel free to get in touch by e-mail at 'journozone at gmail dot com' if you run a serious review blog and would like to review the book. Thanks!
UPDATE on September 6 2011, 19.41 GMT: The next 10 - well, actually, nine now - people to buy the book will receive a free PDF of my 1994 Kerrang! magazine interview piece on the Manic Street Preachers' Japan tour. See http://www.howtointerviewpeople.co.uk for the details!
