This is a remarkably thorough exploration of the topic of writer's block that draws on psychology research, composition theory, and material from interviews and journals discussing writers' composing processes. The book discusses a variety of techniques to explore to reduce one's own writer's block as well as advice for teachers seeking to provide advice to less experienced writers in combating writing block. All in all a very useful little book written in an approachable, conversational style.
