5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant from cover to cover Nov. 5 2010
Format:Paperback
As a writer and copywriter I appreciate great writing. Robert Bly's "The copywriter's Handbook" was not the type of book you wanted to read cover to cover quickly. I found myself wanting to stop frequently and implement the techniques right away. I am on my second time through his book and I know I am likely to read it again and again. If you intend to be successful in marketing online or offline then this has to be a part of your education and your resources.
