This is not a book about grammar but about style and making an emotional impact with the reader. It makes you reconsider every word you wrote and motivates you to make it sparkle.
I've read many books on writing, but if I could keep just one, this would be it.
I particularly like the chapter that covers the differences between literary fiction and commercial reads. I also like the fact that he gives suggestions and then an example, allowing you to see the effects of his techniques.
Sort of like a grumpy uncle rambling on at a family dinner who occasionally lets slip a gem.
Worth a look.
