How lucky writers and editors are to have this reference work from Bill Bryson!

A bestselling author himself across a variety of creative nonfiction genres, in this book he's opened up his toolkit to improve the craft of harried writers and perfectionist writers everywhere.

He keeps his prose simple and concise, but his signature humor is there and his aptitude for storytelling.

I say this every time I review one of his books: Bill Bryson is the best living writer in the English language.
