The cost of praising someone is nil - but every psychological study shows the payoff is huge.
'Nil By Mouth' was a bit autobiographical, but as I always pointed out at the time, that's not my dad.
I drank for about 25 years getting over the loss of my father and I took the anger out on myself. I did a good job at beating myself up at sometimes.

At that time, the people that were in the animated film business were mostly guys who were unsuccessful newspaper cartoonists. In other words, their ability to draw living things was practically nil.
