This book is helpful almost equally for fiction & nonfiction writers. On one hand, that is a compliment. On the other hand, it is not as relevant as it could be for nonfiction authors, particularly those of us writing memoirs. I would have liked many more examples from the memoir & autobiography genres. The author reads well, and she serves up some good reminders for any writer, but I wanted more nonfiction focus.
Her speaking/reading voice is clear and personable, while also professional. I appreciated having the author herself deliver the text. Also, her references to her specific problem-solving paths while writing two of her own nonfiction books (on Coco Chanel and Madame Cliquot) were helpful and engaging.
