Fired Up needs to be read
What's so special about this book? Where else can you sit down with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in private or let Isaac Asimov give you a lesson in how to be a successful writer? This book does just that plus it takes you on my no-holds-barred opinions of everything that strikes my eye as a person and a psychologist. I've even added one incredible story about a psychiatric hospital. Read it and see.
