There are many short blog posts on this topic that left me hungry for more. This book is by far the most comprehensive work on the topic of writing book descriptions that I have been able to find. Concise and well thought out. Excellent examples of book descriptions in a wide array of genres and analysis of their elements. A very helpful and, far as I can tell, incomparable resource.

I appreciate the time taken to write it and make it available.

(I received an ARC from Netgalley.)

This guide is for writers working on the book description for their book jacket. The book was a little repetitive at times. However, the book is still very useful.
