    The book is divided into three main sections: What to write about, how to write a book, and how to sell a book. The focus is exclusively on non-fiction, but covers a wide variety of topics. The first section has a good basic introduction about writing non-fiction, followed by a lengthy list of possible genres. The author suggests which ones are more appropriate for beginners. I skimmed over some of the entries. However there was plenty to interest me in other genres.

The focus is exclusively on non-fiction, but covers a wide variety of topics. The first section has a good basic introduction about writing non-fiction, followed by a lengthy list of possible genres. The author suggests which ones are more appropriate for beginners. I skimmed over some of the entries. However there was plenty to interest me in other genres. The middle chapter begins with a guide to planning, with advice on dividing a book into chapters and sections. The author explains about considering one’s audience and about developing a style. None of this was new to me, and references to technology were very dated, but it was interesting nonetheless. The final section, about approaching publishers and/or agents, has some useful advice, but, again, much is out of date. Overall, the style is readable with some low-key humour in places. Recommended in a low-key way to anyone considering writing non-fiction books. Just ignore the parts that are no longer relevant. (Longer review here: http://suesbookreviews.blogspot.com.c...)
