Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I cannot by far understand why this title has no reviews, let alone, five-star reviews. This book covers every obstacle a writer faces during the writing process. When I first read this book, the craft of writing became very clear to me.
This book is very basic in information on writing. Spend the extra money on Stephen King's On Writing or any of the other known writing books. You'll be better off.
