About the book:

This is a fine , little, non- pretentious, helpful and insightful book about journal- writing. The author is a person who listens to others, including his own students. They provide him with reasons for their journal-keeping. One says 'diary- keeping is memory-keeping' another speaks of its importance for -self- expression', a third wants to record an experience in order to be tell her children about it. The immortalization, or attempted immortalization effect is also considered. Simons principal precept however is that the journal should be kept in order to please the one who is writing it. His rule is that there are no rules, and that it should be of use in the way its writer needs it to be.
