    • First time read-September 2012- This is a five star book because it resonates with every fiber of my being. I am so fortunate to have found this book on the shelves of my local library. Foolsgold is a monumental book for me as a writer, a creator and a person. "The under-song lives in us at any age."p.163 "Although it won't make the news the under-song is brimming with an upwelling of soul and spirit just below the surface, tumbling out alive in our children and elders, hidden in everyone." p.16 [...]


    • I was really looking forward to reading this, since one of her other books, poemcrazy, is one of my all time favorites. I wanted to see what Wooldridge's take on creativity would be and if it could help me with the book I am working on.It disappointed me and didn't deliver. The sub-title, "Making Something from Nothing and Freeing Your Creative Process" is somewhat deceiving. It spends plenty of time discussing her creative ideas, but not very much about her creative process. I also think this w [...]


    • When I finished A Book of One's Own: People and their Diaries, I wanted to read something diary-ish. I picked up The Red Leather Diary and was disappointed. THIS is the book I should have picked up first. The difference between the two is the difference between self-absorbed and self-supportive. I realize most people read this as a creativity how-to book. That was the intent of the author, and it does contain the now-obligatory "tips and prompts" at the end of the very short chapters. Frankly, I [...]



    • out of nearly 50 chapters meant to free the creative process, there were maybe a dozen i found useful or, at the very least, interesting to read. as many times as i've gone back to poemcrazy, wooldridge's other book, and found inspiration and suggestions i needed on dry or dreary days, i was sure foolsgold would be another essential member of my bookshelf. unfortunately, on the whole, it's left me very disappointed. this is not to say i won't read another of wooldridge's books or even that i wil [...]


    • It's nice, one of those books I bought when it came out and wanted to like but then it sat on a shelf unread for eight years. I picked it up again and decided it's time to gift it to another reader. I wasn't the right audience, however i did like the chapter on making collage boxes, it was a short instruction and also an off the cuff retelling of a story, which i appreciated more than some huge long books of how-tos.


    • The idea behind this book is great, but in practice it's pretty repetitive and it drags a bit. Susan Wooldridge definitely knows how to string words into a beautiful necklace. I really enjoyed her poems and will definitely be looking for her poetry books. But, this book got a bit dull. It seemed an ode to her journal. Not for me unfortunately.


    • This book spoke to me. The words soared off the page.Inspiration and motivation were abundant. The author expertly explains the process of poetry , the practice of poetry and how it can make an impact on writers. I loved this second book by Ms Woolridge even more than the firsta must read for every poet or instructor of the craft.


    • This book is great. But, I kept comparing it to Poemcrazy so that's the reason why I gave it 3 stars. It does have nuggets of wisdom and advice on creativity and poetry and writing. There are some dull and sad chapters in the book I had to skim through those.


    • Yet another mediocre response. I promise there is a positive review coming. I am not always so disappointed by what I read. For a more thorough review, follow the link belowtia/2008/05/foo


    • Susan Wooldridge's first book, Poemcrazy, is my favorite book of creative inspiration. Foolsgold, however, is a big disappointment. It has none of the wonder and magic of her first book, and is instead repetitive and dull. I highly recommend PoemCrazy. I do not recommend Foolsgold.


    • This book made me think differently about my creativity and how I can share it better through art, or writing, or anything. Also read Poemcrazy if you want to see words in a whole new way.


    • Nuggets of inspiration between the pages of this book but, like many other reviewers here, I found her other book Poemcrazy had more to offer.





    • This is a touching and inspiring and lively look at writing, loss and turning life into a beautiful fuel for words.
