Publisher's Summary

Published in 1934 and still the best audiobook available on practical psychology of creative writing and all related aspects. The author was herself a successful fiction writer, journalist and also authored a self-help best-seller Wake Up and Live! This audiobook is a must for every practicing or aspiring writer.

Only get if its nearly free/on sale. Not worth a credit.
