It really is a reference book with the first part consisting of short pieces of advice on writing topics and arranged alphabetically. Hard to read straight through - and not designed to be read that way - but would be a good addition to my writer's library. Read full review

Sol Stein's books on writing were my "go too" books in writing two memoirs. This is wonderful reference book for anyone setting out on the journey of penning a story. Read full review
