“Shapiro’s finely tuned, informed and intimate interviews strike to the heart of the matter.”  — Tim Cahill, author of Hold the Enlightenment

“Michael Shapiro is a genius at doing interviews, not just writing them but getting all of the famous people to talk to him.”  — Elaine Petrocelli, owner, Book Passage

“Questions are knowledgeable, probing, thoughtful. … The artists’ discussions are organic and sometimes amusing, and their inclusion is guided by Shapiro’s admiration of his subjects.” — Foreword Reviews
