Coneixement comú



I’ve bought way too many “how to write” books that I’ve parked on my bookshelves and never got around to opening. They sound helpful but are a lot of blather with maybe one good tip among the pages.
This is not that kind of book. I borrowed it from the library, and it’s due today, so I thought I’d have a quick run-through to see if it was worth perhaps adding to my good writing books shelf (it’s quite small) or if I should return it to the library and forget it.
It’s 2 hours later and I have been totally immersed. Gutkind has so many approachable examples and ideas that I was positively entranced. I’m working on building up my creative non-fiction writing and this is just the book to encourage me, and anyone else with similar goals.
It’s a rare writer who can clearly explain how it can be done. Gutkind is one. The book is on my to-buy list. Excellent information on all aspects of writing creative non-fiction, with telling examples and exercises I actually want to do.

Defiantly an interesting title. And reading this book it becomes very clear that nurses have to be strong.Nur sing is one of the most physically and emotionally challenging jobs out there and sadly their voices aren't always heard. This book is long over due. Doctors grab all the glory in the medical field and nurses are all to often the unsung heroes. This book sings their songs; loud & strong.

This book is a good starting place for non-fiction writers. One of the most valuable resources in it is list of some the best in creative non-fiction. It is a shame that as other reviewers here already mentioned--the book is in a desperate need of an update to talk about changes due to the Internet.
