Very Helpful. I first read this in college. It inspired me to write (I'm a published author.) Also, not everyone knows Dorothea Brande wrote a mega-bestseller on living well, that still has many fans: Wake Up and Live.

This book hits the nail on the head (as they say) and is extremely informative and essential for all the would-be writers out there.

Want to be a Writer? Then read this book. It is bound to become a classic in the genre. If you are a blunted/stunted Artists for whatever reason? This book is for you.
