My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A really really useful book that covers everything that you need to get right in order to be published. It was particularly nice that it was from a UK angle; so many How To books are US-centred. Of course most things apply wherever you are based, but it was just refreshing to see a British perspective.
It's not actually a How To book in that it doesn't claim to teach you how to write. As Nicola Morgan says, you should regard her as a GP rather than a specialist. Reading the book will point you in the direction of what you might need to work on, then you need more focused guidance.
But as an overall book on what you need to know in order to be a professional writer, I thought it worked really well.
