's review

it was ok
bookshelves: genre-nonfiction, woman-author

** spoiler alert ** The back of my book says this book is humor/reference however I would disagree. It is more reference than humor and if you come into it with the mindset of reading a humor book you will be sorely disappointed (I was).

However, it is a helpful reminder of things a writer should avoid. It is not horrible as a reference, it's a good one! But if you are considering buying it full price ($15!?!?), save your money.
