Encouraging and informative, 24 Aug 2008
This was a very interesting and helpful book for anyone interested in ghostwriting. It is aimed at those wishing to pursue it as a career, but is generally interesting for anyone who just wishes to learn about the process.
The structure was straightforward, the text easy, it wasn't too long nor arduous to read, and the voice of the author was encouraging and friendly. He clearly enjoys his work, and is enthusiastic towards it. He also sees the potential for others who might do so. The book sets out all the advantages and disadvantages of ghostwriting, how to know if it would work for you, how to begin working as a ghostwriter, how to publish, contracts and legal agreements, and so forth.
I felt that there were two real strengths to this book. In the first place, the author had a very humble attitude - he felt like a real person rather than a distant authority on the subject which is important if you the reader are to believe that you too can become a ghostwriter. Secondly, real examples from the authors ghostwriting books were included. These supported the points he was making but were also interesting in their own right.
It is not an expensive book and well worth the read.
