This book, although aimed at pre-teens / tweens, was incredibly useful, informative, and inspiring for me, even at age 16.
It is interactive-optional, meaning there are activities within the book to complete, however they are optional and not necessary to continue reading. It’s well designed and set up in an easy to navigate and easy to understand way. The information is clear and informative while still interesting without being dull. It is easy and fast to read, as you can skip over parts that aren’t applicable or interesting to you. This book provides insights into your personality type, career options, and ways to get your foot in the door.
I found the book engaging and inspiring, as well as informative – it’s not a bore to read, which is key to non-fiction. It delivers exactly what it promises.
This book has a recommendation from me to anyone wanting to know about career pathways that involve writing.
