Good for Non Fiction Writers

User Review  - mlsatterfield - Overstock.com

I bought this book at the urging of another writer and am glad I did. It is full of useful information and covers topics from usage and style to writing travel sports memoirs and more. It was well worth the cost and I would recommend it to non fiction writers in all areas. Read full review
