    When James Bond is asked to settle a dispute over "ungentlemanly behavior" at an exclusive gambling club, the affair is embarrassing in the extreme, for the accused is the unimpeachable Sir Hugo Drax: business tycoon, popular hero, patriot extraordinaire, and head of the multimillion-dollar Moonraker missile program on which Britain's future defense depends.

    Stein on Writing provides immediately useful advice for writers of fiction and nonfiction, whether newcomers or accomplished professionals. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of usable solutions, how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place."

    Where does Stein on Writing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book kept me from reinventing the wheel. The audio format was useful.


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt like I was at one of Sol's writer's clinics.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    People read to escape so don't bore them with the mundane.


    Any additional comments?

    I think my writing has improved after listening to this treatise.
