Irreverent, slightly dirty in places, and packed with advice and suggestions that you know is common sense. There are lots of 'doh!' moments in this book - as in, 'I should have thought of that!' Neatly sliced and diced into 25-bit morsels, you can read this front to back or dip into it for specific issues you might be having. Have to admit, I got the highlighter pen and the day-glo stickers out for this book, which means there's stuff in here I'll be coming back to again and again.

A great reference for the budding writer but also a great book for dipping into for bite-sized inspiration chunks.

The Kindle universe is awash in "how to write" books at present. This one is actually worth the money -- in fact, I'd say it's amazingly good value.

It helped me finish the first draft of my novel. Now I'm in the first re-write and plan on going back to take a second look at his revision tips.

Sensitive souls should perhaps be warned that Chuck Wendig takes delight in coming up with new and creative obscenities, but it's all in good fun.

Highly recommended.

I've been following Chuck Wendig on Twitter for a while now, and he always dishes out great writing advice. This book is a collection of his '25 Ways to..." articles from his website, and they're filled with insights on all aspects of writing, from the craft, building an audience, traditional and self-publishing tips and more. If you're a writer, you'll keep coming back to this book for years to come, whenever you need it. Great stuff :)

Certainly a different writing self-help book. Fantastically different.

Wonderful tit-bits and gems of information that summarise what it takes to publish a piece of written work.

A book that I will regularly return to in the next few years. Best writing book I have read in th last 24 months.
