4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid advice, 12 May 2005
Neatly laid out and easy to follow, this book is a terrific introduction for aspiring Commissioning Editors. There is loads of solid, down to earth advice and some very useful checklists.
It will also give anyone entering or considering the publishing arena a terrific insider's view, a flavour for what goes on and an introduction to the terminology and mindsets of others in the business.

1.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive repetitive repetitive, 6 Jan. 2005
Sorry, only managed the first 40 pages. Am a great fan, loved Moab is my washpot but this was dull dull dull. The joke of 'actually' being mistaken for 'Ashley' seemed to go on for ever. Three pages at least.
I really looked forward to reading this but it should be labelled 'Fry Lite' - maybe if I'd kept reading. But I didn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted, 6 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Moab Is My Washpot (Paperback)
A terrific read giving an insight into public school life hidden from us poorer folk. This work is to the age of 20 and Stephen seems honest - cringingly so. Some of his opinions and language will offend the more sensitive among us. Very absorbing and almost un-put-downable.
Will buy the next 20 years for sure.
