Excellent!Customer review, Amazon.co.uk, November 11, 2005 Reviews of previous editions:"The best book ever on article writing."James Gracie, Writer's Monthly "My 'Bible'! This was my primary reference source when I was self-teaching myself to become a writer. I have subsequently had over 12,000 words and 260 pictures published in 20 UK leisure and lifestyle magazines seen by approximately 2.5 million readers."Customer review, Amazon.co.uk "I would recommend this to intermediate level writers - those who are not complete beginners, but not seasoned professionals either. They will benefit most."Customer review, Amazon.co.uk
