Unlike many of the other writing books I've read, this one is heavy on the craft and light on the psychology. He's especially big on outlining, not the Roman numeral type, but a really good one that I've since applied. The author even provides two of his own articles and tells you phrase by phrase why he chose the words he chose. I learned a lot from this book, and it didn't matter that it's about non-fiction. A good story is a good story, and this writer helped me improve.
