An even better quote

From the preface of Pragmatic Ajax (Gehtland, Almaer, and Galbraith), on book writing:

"Writing a book is a lot like (we imagine) flying a spaceship too close to a black hole. One second you're thinking "Hey, there's something interesting over there" and a picosecond later, everything you know and love has been sucked inside and crushed."
