This book is not for everyone. If you want to be writer because you think it'll make you rich and famous; if you care more about being published than about actually being a good writer; if you think getting published is going to solve all your problems and make your life perfect; if you claim to have no insecurites about your writing and thus don't want to read about dealing with insecurities, this book is NOT for you. (Although if you really believe you have no insecurities, I congratulate you on the magnitude of your self-delusion.)

If, on the other hand, you love reading good writing, want to do good writing yourself, and could use a few tips for getting the work done and not giving in to despair along the way, this is the best possible book you can read. Don't wait any longer to get yourself a copy.
