    Sam Stone gets to the point and offers great advice This is a great reference book to help push your imagination in your writing. This author knows the process well and presents the material and thoughts in a simple, clear fashion. Both books 1 and 2 are a must for writers to have in their arsenal.

As a quick resource when stumped for a way to show rather than tell, it has some, limited utility. A Useful Cheat Sheet My comments about the first volume apply here.
