If you are any kind of writer who has the hopes of publishing one day, read this book. Goins gives tips on how to be a better writer, how to get published, and what to do after you‘re published. He does start to focus more on article-writers towards the end, but there‘s still some useful tidbits.

Goins is smart, educated and experienced. He‘s walking the walk and in this book he talks the talk. A good book to revisit when it‘s time to take writing to the next level and you need a refresher or a push in the right direction.
