It is one of the best books on writing I have ever read. It combines real life stories about King’s life with advice about writing. It covers everything from attitude, to nuts-and-bolts techniques.
I learned a great deal about how to write, but also about what makes a writer. About the process of making it in the industry, and about the pitfalls, both before and after you are actually writing.
I can recommend it to anyone who has an interest in writing, or just an interest in how King became one.
