This is a necessary book to help writers know the facts about writing. Gardner points out that good writing starts with actually sitting down and writing; that the first thing a story must be, before including theme and symbolism, is a good story; and that writing, while it might not lead to wealth, can be rewarding.

An excellent book about the art of writing and the nature of the writer, with strict and confident views, from one of the greatest modern writers.
