    This should be the first, second or last book any writer or story teller should read. The philosophy within it spills over from story telling into the narrative of our life. I got a lot from this book.

    This book has a wealth of tools and insights into the craft of writing fiction. I'm going to get a printed copy, which I plan to keep next to my writing desk.
