I've just started this book, so my comment relates to the opening (the first chapter, to be specific) where 1000-words-an-hour technique is introduced. I'm using this technique at the moment, and have completed almost 200 words in 10 minutes (this figure is times and times better than most of my 'serious'writings) which all reflects that people usually reflect too much on each and every word they write and act all critical even before finishing their thoughts. For years I've searched for a way to allow 'flow'. Who knew it would be that simple?
I highly recommend this book to everyone: academic writers, teachers and even expert researchers and writers.

I find it difficult to understand: unclear content, illogical sequence of sections, missing information.
