I picked up this book from Amazon after seeing a friend link it on Facebook. At first I was a little dubious because I've never held much faith in books that tell you how to write, however this one sounded interesting so I took the plunge and paid the quite reasonable price for it. I'm very happy that I took the chance. This book was nothing at all like I imagined.
The book itself is fairly small, and broken down into several sections, each focusing on a different technique for improving your writing style. Each section is easy to understand and take in, and doesn't overwhelm you with information. There are also plenty of examples, as well as a couple of exercises for you to have a go at, with sample answers. Everything that was said in the book made perfect sense, and since reading this book I've found my writing to be a lot tighter.
Some of the suggestions in this book are so simple, and yet they were things I'd never even thought about before as a writer. 5 stars for being very informative without over-complicating things, and for making some great suggestions that I was able to pick up almost straight away. If I had to recommend any book on writing to new writers (and established writers, for that matter), this would be it.
