I think this book is a must-read for many authors going the non-traditional route. Most of this stuff, I already knew not to do--either based on reading or my own research, or based on just plain common sense. But other stuff required a little thought, and I was able to add to my mental rolodex of stuff to avoid doing when I write. So even though the book doesn't pinpoint anything I've done yet
, there were a few ideas in there that I appreciate having the opportunity to think about so that I can avoid doing them in the future.
And if nothing else, the book is entertaining. It includes many passages written to exemplify writing no-nos, and some of them are laugh-out-loud funny.
I took away a couple stars because many of the examples seemed repetitive.
