Review: The Forest for the Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writers
The Forest for the Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writers by Betsy Lerner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There were some really good nuggets in this book, advice for editors and writers alike. I appreciated Lerner's candor and insight overall. I felt like the book sort of imploded at the end, though, and then fizzled out. I'm not sure I feel so doom and gloom about the state of the publishing industry as she does. Yes the old world is dying, fading, reorganizing, but that marks the beginning of something new, exciting, vibrant to come. These are the birthing pains as story-telling and sharing reincarnates again. I'm glad to be part of it.
