Robert¿s Rules of Writing, by Robert Masello is one of my favorites. Much like Leonard Bishop¿s Dare to be a Great Writer, this is a collection of writing tips presented in no particular order. Because of the format, I wouldn¿t recommend either as the first ¿how-to¿ book for a novice. But the scrambled format works well for me when I¿m looking for a quick read during TV commercials. Many of the ideas offer practical help others provide thought-provoking insight. You don¿t have to agree with every ¿rule¿ to enjoy this one.
