4.0 out of 5 stars Some worthwhile 4-star advice!
I got a lot out of this book, particularly with regard to the overall title of my proposed book, chapter sub-headings and detailed revision. I thought it could have done with a bit more on revision, and the writer could have edited down the early chapters - we seemed to take a long while to begin to get to the point.

I thought it could have done with a bit more on revision, and the writer could have edited down the early chapters - we seemed to take a long while to begin to get to the point.

But I enjoyed his very direct style and his grown-up approach to the reader/writer, and I'm a lot more enthusiastic than I was about my revising!
