This was my first time reading one of the books from the Best American Essays and I was fairly pleased by a majority of the essays. A large percentage were well crafted and poignant. I particularly liked "In Defense of the Book" by William H. Gass and "Gray Area: Thinking with a Damaged Brain" by Floyd Skloot.
