I didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. I don't usually get into Non-Fiction books but Stephen King has a great way of drawing you in. I especially enjoyed the section on Tv and Horror movies. Surprisingly the section on Horror novels was a bit dry to me. Even though I hadn't seen a lot of the movies he mentioned (this book was written before I was even born) he's good at describing the necessary scenes. For some reason, to me, he didn't do as great a job as drawing me into the Horror novel section. King's sense of humor really comes through in this book too.

The bestselling horror author of all time, Stephen King, knows better than anyone else in the world what scares you, and why. Now, in his most unusual masterpiece, he takes you on his personal tour of the dark ballroom of horror. come, Take his arm, Let the dance begin....

Book developed from a class on writing that King taught. His thoughts and ideas on what horror is, listing lots of other resources.

King talks about the horror stories, books, movies, etc. that he likes and that have influenced his writing. Very good, make me laugh out loud.
