Ugh. If you just want to publish a book because you think it's a good way to make money, this is the guide for you. If you want to actually write well and care about the work you're doing, stay away from this book.

This was pretty good and very thorough on how to get things done and what you need to know. It's not exactly in the most up-to-date fashion, but it helped me out a lot. It focused a lot on Non-fiction aspiring authors, but the information was pretty good for fictional aspiring authors too. ^_^
