I purchased this book two years ago and the first copy I purchased was taken by my brother. Of course I headed to the bookstore to purchase my own copy. I refer back to this book over and over again and it's very inviting to an individual that is just seeking out creative writing for the very first time. This book is not a waste of money; it is worth the time reading.
