I keep hearing buzz about this book. I may just have to go get my own copy... You'll have to tell us what you think of it. :)

The book is very very good. The workbook (published separately) is in a whole other class, though. If I could only have one, I'd take the workbook.

I've heard that the workbook is essentially the book in condensed form. But I've still heard rave reviews about both. I'm planning on buying a copy as soon as I'm done getting everyone's school supplies.

No, not quite. The workbook is the result of taking the ideas from the original book and turning them into practical, explicit exercises.

How is it?

I can only get one right now and I can't decide between the book, the workbook or the other one... the Breakout Novelist.
