This is a Writer’s Digest book, which means it will not inspire or thrill you. Essentially, it’s a compendium of checklists. Helpful, I suppose, but underwhelming. The author relies too much, I think, on mechanical gadgetry -- Flesch reading ease scores, syllable counts, word counts, and so on -- as suggestions to improve your writing.
