    I learned so much from reading this book After reading just the first couple of chapters I was ready to go back and revise all the short stories I have written and haven't been able to publish The best part about this book however are the examples They really drive the author's point home and make the lessons memorable This is something I will be returning to again and again as I work on any future stories or novels

    If you're writing a book this is a very useful reference to have I was hoping to swap for it but finally broke down and bought a new copy and I'm not sorry I've been through it in its entirety several times Bonus if you buy the book the author will critiue the first chapter of a prospective novel
