Jay Mullings is a talented, driven, and high-achieving man. To be painfully honest, he strikes many people as a little odd. This is not to say that he isn’t handsome and charming by conventional standards; he is. Nor is it to say that his screenwriting, which is already winning prizes, isn’t accessible and gripping; it is. But Jay has a look in his eye; that of a man who knows who and what he wants to be and where and when he’s going. He also isn’t afraid to tell you what he thinks you should be doing (which in my case is writing this foreword). People like this make you argue. Some times you agree with them. Sometimes you disagree. And sometimes they make you see things, and yourself in a different light. This book can be used to tell you about Jay, and the way he sees things. I’m not against that. I like and respect him. But there is another way to read; one that I think is better. Reading this book helps you to know and to defend yourself. Listen carefully, and then argue with Jay on the many occasions when you resent him telling you things you feel you knew already, or asserting things that can’t be true for reasons you have yet to formulate. He makes you defend yourself; he makes you remind yourself of what you know; he makes you decide the real reasons why you believe things. And this, I believe, is what the book is really for. Dr. Ian Smith.
