Format: Kindle Edition
Disclaimer: I am not a writer--aspiring or otherwise. I was interested in this book because I thought it would allow me to switch from a reader's perspective to an author's. I have thus not followed the author's practical instructions.

Having said that, I think that reading the book closely and doing all the "exercises" might help an inexperienced writer of genre fiction quite a bit. The author explains in detail how to structure (popular) novels/movies, and also gives lots of examples.
I cannot imagine, however, that the book would be very helpful to anyone trying to write something I would afterwards call "literature". Literature is, I would argue, not created by following recipes.
Personally, I was also rather irritated with the author's repetitiveness. I am usually able to grasp concepts, especially rather simplistic ones, the first time they are explained; I do not need constant formulaic reminders. It seemed to me like some of the repetitions might have stemmed from the author's rewriting/rearranging the book between the first and second editions; these should have been pointed out by her editor.

All in all: possibly useful for aspiring writers of popular fiction, but probably not for anyone else.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
