PLEASE HEAR ME OUT BEFORE YOU READ THE REST OF THIS REVIEW!
This book has all the material you need to become better at writing, but for how much it costs, it is not worth the admission. You can get much cheaper books, such as "Writing for Visual Media" that have just as much information for a fraction of the cost.
That, and this book is really dense. Don't expect any visuals any time soon. I'm not really a visual learner, but after 50 pages of nothing but small print text, it gets old quick.
If you, like me, are a student, buy this book for a cheap as you can so you can resell it. If you are an adult wanting to hone your reading and writing skills, then find a cheaper book.
Just because this book is expensive doesn't mean it is the best.
