Excellent tips, discussing many aspects of writings including magazine articles, books, travel writing, technical writing, greeting cards, agents, publishers, and many business-related aspects of the field. It does seem behind in his view of technology, however, as he discusses the need for a computer and a computer's basic components...he describes AOL as a per-hour fee service provider, and describes what a word processor is. Another small downside is that instead of going in-depth on some topics, he instead references other books for you to read. He does, however, go into adaquate depth for you to be in business. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the commercial aspect of writing. For a book on improving style, however, I would probably suggest another route.Was this review helpful?
