The Art of War for Writers: Fiction Writing Strategies, Tactics, and Exercises
Something about this book really irritated me. Perhaps because the title is reminiscent of my all time favorite book on creativity, "The war of Art" by Steven Pressfield. Also the format: very short chapters focusing on one small part of the writing process. But whereas Pressfield's book is actually knock-it-out-of-the-park creative, this is nothing but a rehash of clichés and platitudes (sorry if you consider the same) on various aspects of the writing life. In my opinion, the only thing it has going for it is a catchy title (which in my opinion was stolen from Pressfield's).
