Reader: This is an excellently written, well organized piece of writing. The information in it is actively practical, something that can't always be said for books on this topic. Many are either too detailed, or not interesting enough to keep the readers attention. This one is neither. This is an area that desperately needed updating in my personal library, so I'm glad that I was able to pick this one up.
I tore through this book in about two days. I RARELY buy books but I pre-ordered this one... I just had a feeling it would be a treasure trove of useful information that I'd want to go back to and it did not disappoint. I've taken a pitching class, read tons on the topic of writing and pitching, and while there were some parts of this book I already knew a) it was great to have everything consolidated in one place vs random corners of the internet, notebooks I've misplaced and b) there was also a good deal of info and advice that was new to me or explained in a way that more of an impression on me. Not only that but it's not just a bunch of information Shapiro is spewing at you.. It's hard-won knowledge that she imbues with personality and humor.
Shapiro also uses lists...and who doesn't love a good, practical list! I expect that this is one reference book is one I'll keep close at hand.
