Review:

I’ve read all of Scott King’s books on writing so far, and once again he delivers an excellent guide. If you’ve already got a great outlining process you might not find this book that helpful, but then again you probably won’t be looking for a book on outlining in the first place. Most of the ideas I’ve seen before, but there are some great original ideas.

the 100% best part of this entire book, is that Scott King chose to write in a conversational style. It feels more like you’re reading an email sent to you alone, rather than the typical academic book on writing which invents terms to be unique. If anyone asks me about outlining this is now the first book I’ll point them to.
