The book is brimming with sound advice (I found the sections on plot/structure, blockbuster prose and dialogue particularly helpful). Also, unlike other books on the subject (which normally reserve only a chapter on the submission process) HTWAB has an entire section on it: 75 pages of insightful comments etc. The chapter `your submission package' is particularly good for anyone about to send off to an agent.
If you're looking for a lot of guidance in specific areas of writing (such as character or dialogue) this may not be the book for you. But as a single volume covering all the major aspects of writing I would highly recommend it. I certainly wish I'd had something this comprehensive when I started writing.
