On Writing – Book Review

Here is the newest book review from the Book Review Directory!

The Book Review Directory


I recently finished reading, well actually listening to, Stephen King’s On Writing: A Memoir of  the Craft. 

Highly recommended for all writers!

There’s a lot of conflicting advice about craft books for writers—some think you can’t learn from them, or that the best way to improve your writing is just by more writing. And I agree with the latter point. I also believe that books on writing can help you improve if you already are writing.

  1. ‘On Writing’ is one of my top three favourite books on the topic. Numbers two and three in no particular order are Bird by Bird – Ann Lamott and Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones. While Ms. Goldberg has written several on the subject, it is her first on writing and to date her best.


  2. I read this book a few years ago. I did not think of Stephen King as someone who would have thoughtful insights on writing. How wrong I was! It turned out to be one of my favorite books on writing, very concise, practical and thoughtful.
