Dark Tower fans: GET THIS BOOK!
This is absolutely a must-buy for those who have read (and are still reading) Stephen King's Dark Tower. It's VERY interesting and enlightening, along with being EXTREMELY helpful. I got this book as I was still on The Gunslinger, and used it as I read the rest. I can't recommend this enough.
