"Not since Dickens has a writer had so many readers by the throat…. King's imagination is vast. He knows how to engage the deepest sympathies of his readers…. It is part biography, part collection of tips for the aspiring writer. In the final chapters, King tells, in graphic details, the story of his recent accident…. a bizarre and absorbing story, told brilliantly by one of the great storytellers of our time."
In June of 1999, Stephen King was hit by a van while walking along the shoulder of a country road in Maine. Six operations were required to save his life and mend his broken body. When he was finally able to sit up, he immediately started writing. This book is the extraordinary result.
"This is the written equivalent of Delia Smith's How To Cook. And, like British home cooking, the world of popular fiction will be better off for it." (The Times)

Part 'How to' part Autobiographical
Yes - easier to access for busy budding writers
None, Stephen King's advice and narration are so easy to listen to and his honesty is very inspiring.
Yes, Bag of Bones, love his voice, this was a different type of book and very easy to listen to.
I was very moved when he admitted and owned his alcoholism.
I love his message, writers need to understand that he wasn't born with a golden spoon. He worked very hard at some seriously menial jobs and perservered with his writing when most of us would be making excuses.
