Actually, I really don't like self help books. They usually just regurgitate everything you know already in a really long winded way, and then repeat the message several times over to really make the point! So, I didn't hold out much hope for this one, but as I do want to learn more about the subject of writing for a living, I at least read the reviews - and these were fairly positive (so that's one proven lesson already from the book - the power of a positive review!). Actually, the book was extremely well written and absolutely full of great, practical and down to earth advice. This was really practical stuff and I actually came away from reading this book with a plan in my head! I will be referring to this book again. If you want to get into writing for a living, this is a dam good start. Thank you Andre Ardmore.
