A good book for writing content for magazines, the web and newsletters. It's useable, and shares a lot of content that I often see people asking about in writing groups or in writing courses. Overall, this is a book you could regularly return to, especially if you're starting out with content writing. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
