Very good. Informative. Get you started with direction.

For a beginner ghost writers this is a great book. A lot of helpful information.

Because the writer is a male, I thought it would be better to use a male voice as well to represent the writer's voice. But the lady is a total professional and speaks well. In the end it won't matter.
