Recommends it for: poets
This is another great book that is essential to any poet. Chapters are filled with tips, guidelines, poems and so much more.

Recommends it for: poets/teachers of poetry/creative writing
I use this book as a required text in my intro to poetry writing class in addition to Addonizzio and Laux's _Poet's Companion_. This is a great book for helping students (especially beginning writers) think outside the box and generate new poems.
I read this for a course and got a good many poetry exercises out of it. May as well give it a go!
