From a guy who has "been there-done that", Paul Dorset's short book is extremely insightful, full of practical ideas (the story point chapter was well worth the price in it of itself) and a fast read. I cannot recommend this book enough to writers of all levels.
I liked that the author put out some writing samples, both good and bad to illustrate his points. He would often put out the bad samples and then clean them up to illustrate good writing.
The last part of the book was quite informative. I hadn't heard of the concept of "pre-readers", so that information was worth the price of the book alone.
He describes how to format your book for self-publication, and where to go for more information.
This book is a useful, informative series of essays on how to become a published author and I would recommend it.
