Considering the nature of the book, a collection of articles and interviews, it is fragmented and redundant. But definitely recommended for Miyazaki-san's fans. Provides an insight into his mind and his work and creative process. ( )

[A] full-bodied book of provocative thoughts and reminiscence from the still vital career of this animation genius.

If I were asked to give my view, in a nutshell, of what animation is, I would say that it is "whatever I want to create."

Disambiguation notice
The information here (ex. 2009 publication date) pertains to the Cary and Schodt translation of Miyazaki's Starting Point and not to the original Japanese which was published in 1996 as Shuppatsu Ten, 1979–1996 in Japan by Tokuma Shoten [affiliated with Studio Ghibli]. The English translated version also does not have all the content included in the Japanese original (missing about 17 articles).
