Uniquely fusing practical advice on writing with his own insights into the craft, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes constructs beautiful prose about the issues would-be writers are most afraid to articulate: How do I dare write? Where do I begin? What do I do with this story I have to tell that fills and breaks my heart? Rich with personal vignettes about Rhode's sources of inspiration, How to Write is also a memoir of one of the most original and celebrated writers of our day.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is simply one of the best books on the craft of writing. One reason for this is the author is one of the best writers of non-fiction that I have ever read. Filled with great examples and references for writing and reading, the book covers the tools, voices, and research necessary for writing. He then spends two chapters outlining the process to take the tools and research and create actual writing. Beyond that the book provides guidelines and principles that may be applied to other areas of your life. This is a truly invaluable book for your writing and reading life.
Probably the best book on writing that I've read. Very clear, articulate and peaceful to read. Rhodes avoids the overwhelming nature of many books on writing and publishing.
