Diverse and insightful advice!

by ViewAndReview on Oct 21, 2010

The various authors, all fairly well-known as experts in at least one particular style of writing nonfiction, all provide useful insight on how to write engaging nonfiction. The diversity of both perspectives and writing tips is astounding, making this a wonderful go-to guide for writers of nonfiction. The only drawback is that some information/advice gets repeated several times among different authors, but taking in the same advice twice is a small price to pay for the quality of insight contained in this volume. Kramer and Call also offer helpful introductions to each chapter. Highly recommended.
