Even if you don't think of yourself as a writer, some part of your life likely requires you to write. This book is that perfect combination of inspiration and practical advice for anyone who writes anything-- newsletters, memos, articles, novels, even lectures or screenplays. I've flagged and dog-eared this book. It will definitely go on my permanent reference shelf.
