Life in the public eye can be particularly perilous in the internet age, as access and anonymity conspire to bring out the worst in many. For these writers though, retreat is not an option. Navigating a public presence both on and offline, they reveal what keeps them going, and how they stay true to what really matters.

Hidup dilihat dari kacamata publik bisa terasa tak lagi nyaman, terutama di era internet ini, sebagaimana kebebasan akses justru bisa memancing kemungkinan terburuk yang akan Anda hadapi. Bagi para penulis ini, menarik diri bukanlah sebuah alasan. Melihat pengaruh peranan publik baik secara langsung maupun tak langsung, mereka akan mengungkapkan apa yang membuat mereka terus mengerjakan yang telah mereka mulai, dan bagaimana mereka tetap berpegang pada hal-hal yang benar-benar penting.
