I love all of the thesaurus books and use them for all of my writing but this book is truly a treasure. This book adds to my repertoire as I build my characters out - the positive and negative traits and now their wounds - to add depth and enrich my characters. This book allows you to look at various wounds for your characters, and how they might affect the character, building a well-rounded character and avoiding any cardboard characters. It contains examples of wounds, needs impacted, false beliefs and fears, results of these and how the character may have responded. There are multiple options, not just one, and personality traits and triggers too that can exacerbate the wound. However, this is not just a dry recitation of wounds, but an educational text on character arcs and how to write using the wounds. The information in this book, as with the others, is invaluable and is essential on every writer's shelf.
