I borrowed this from the library and glad I did that rather than buying it.

I previously read another 'how to write a novel' book and much prefer that one.

This book is okay but says to do the opposite to some things other books I've read have said.

it was nice to see the opinions of other writers in parts of this book.

If you are a beginner writer then I would read this book because although you might not agree with everything the author says, it's nice to hear from different POVs
