A very basic overview on writing short stories. Good information. ( )

Some decent advice in here, but not a lot that hadn't been said elsewhere. Perhaps the best features are the well structured layout, to the point discussions, and the FAQs part the end. I made quite a few notes. ( )

The beauty of this book are the tip sheets and the exercises at the end of every chapter. VERY teacher friendly--even if you're teaching yourself! ( )
