Publisher's Summary

Whether you are a novice writer or a veteran who has already had your work published, rejection is often a frustrating reality. Literary agents and editors receive and reject hundreds of manuscripts each month. While it's the job of these publishing professionals to be discriminating, it's the job of the writer to produce a manuscript that immediately stands out among the vast competition. And those outstanding qualities, says New York literary agent Noah Lukeman, have to be apparent from the first five pages.

The First Five Pages reveals the necessary elements of good writing, whether it be fiction, nonfiction, journalism, or poetry, and points out errors to be avoided.

If you own only two or three books on writing in your whole life, then this should be at least one of them. It's been around a couple of years, but nothing is better. The narration is amazing. The reader even chuckles at a few parts because of the funny quotes. Honestly, one of the most well-narrated books I've ever read. You'll see once you start listening to it. You'll feel like the dude is sitting next to you in the car.
