For someone who is completely new to the world of sales letters, this book takes you through the whole process from A-Z. The book is extremely accessible (minimal use of jargon), gets right to the point (do this, don't do that), and you'll find yourself using the principles almost immediately. I had a freelance sales letter opportunity fall in my lap soon after reading this, and I made myself sound like an old pro; the client was satisfied from the first draft forward. The book really is that good.
The only item that irked me, especially as the book drew to a close, was the amount of "upselling," both for the author's products as well as those of some of his colleagues. However, this is ultimately a sales book, the author apparently knows what he's doing, and it did not detract from any of the real content.
Overall, I couldn't recommend more highly, whether you're a complete beginner looking for the inside track, or a seasoned pro searching for some fresh ideas.
