A good and thorough handbook, certainly, and one I come back to as a resource and a guide again and again. The parts I have use for are brilliant. The reason it only gets three stars is largely because so much of the book is of little interest or use to me. I never intend to write for radio or television, thus those chapters were simply skipped. But, as said; a quality book none the less.
