It's an entertaining read. There's a good bit about how adults can't play games with the single-mindedness of kids cos there's so many responsibilities to distract them. The nagging sense of "should I be doing something else". Very true for me, anyway.

Funny that, I remember it being talked about when I was at school still, so mid-90s, to the point where I went to one of his signings and said is this true? He replied, I saw him the other day, so I know it's not.
