I've just reread this, browsing through it quickly to refresh my memory. It's very good and I am very grateful that someone recommended it to me. You'll probably reread it too. It is impossible to read once because its contents resonate differently after more and more writing practice. I took away a lot from it the first time I read it but there is just too much good advice in it to keep in mind all at once. When I reread it, I kept thinking "Oh, yeah, try to do that." Or I thought: "Am I doing that? Am I getting that effect?"
Great, great book. Someone in my writing group referred to it today. Again.
