I think this short read helps demystify great dialog. As a writer, this book makes you think about technical writing issues. As a reader and consumer, this book helps you become aware of the rules and guidelines of dialog.
Bernhardt, divides things up into bite-sized chapters and provides exercises at the end of each for the purpose of honing skills. He avoids lengthy cut-and-paste examples and instead focuses on concise examples. I believe any series reader or writer will benefit from this work.

If you haven't read anything about dialogue before, this covers off basically what most other books on the subject explore. Most of the examples are from the authors own work, and a lot of them fall flat upon delivery. I wasn't inspired to take notes or try any of his exercises. I don't think I will bother with his other books.
