This book of quotes on writing is very good. It puzzles me beyond belief that "Writers on Writing" is out of print. Jon Winokur did a great job not only in collecting the quotes but in organizing the quotes by theme. I recommend this book because of the wealth of knowledge and inspiration that can be found in short quotes. This book is a grand, well-chosen collection of quotes on such apects of writing-from getting published, to starting out, to writer's block. Jon Winokur is a quote-collecting master. When I first became serious about writing, I found this book at my local library, and found it hard to put down, and extremely helpful and insightful. I recommend this book because of the wealth of knowledge and inspiration that can be found in short quotes
This book of quotes on writing is very good. One of the quotes in the book is a good summary of this book: "When someone has the wit to coin a useful phrase, it ought to be acclaimed and broadcast or it will perish" - Jack Smith. Thank you, Mr. Winokur for "broadcasting" the hundreds of quotes about writing in your book
