A 250 page rant about how bad the life of a working writer is. I don't understand. If Ms. Resnick truly thinks that the writing life is so bad, why is she still in it? Nobody is forcing her to. Ms. Resnick loves to point fingers about how dismally she's been treated by New York publishers. She doesn't name names, but is certain that all agents and editors are out to get her. After four "bad agent" stories and half a dozen "bad editor" stories, I had to look at the common denominator: Resnick herself.  Bottom line: this is not a helpful book for writers. There is no take-away message here. It's just page after page of complaints.

This book was a great read, I laughed aloud quite a few times per chapter. The wit propels you through the very harsh realities of being a working writer. Highly recommended to anyone trying to make a career as a writer.
