    *Good for the experienced writer, bad for the newbie*

    While this book is a handy tool for those already familiar with the publishing process, it does not provide much detail for the inexperienced writer. I received this book as a gift and read through it, hoping it'd give me a good foundation in the writing experience, but truth be told, all it gave me was a bunch of phone numbers and email addresses, and a few tips here and there about writing. Don't get me wrong--several of the book's words of wisdom are invaluable, and it provides an excellent example of a book proposal. But if you're an newbie to the field--like me--and you don't even know what a book proposal or a query letter is, then I suggest you look up some other books first be4 going straight for this one. To sum it all up, if what you're looking for is an in-depth analysis of the writing/publishing process and have no idea know where to start, then don't stop here.
