's review

it was amazing

Funny, concise and filled with honest, punch-to-the-gut guidance, this book is a winner. If you are a writer who cannot (for the life of you) figure out why your manuscript is lagging, missing something or just plain not working; do yourself a favour: read this book! I had been struggling with rewrites for weeks, but after reading one-third of this book, my brain was overflowing with ideas on how to improve the plot and structure of my novel. The rest of the book gave me so (so) many tips on how to edit and rewrite the story.

If you are self-aware and open to hard criticism and reality, this book is a good developmental editor in print form. If you are not self-aware or open to harsh criticism, you should probably rethink a career in writing.
