A writing book recommendation

I started reading Revenge of the Penmonkey by Chuck Wendig on my Kindle last night and I'm really enjoying it. I just finished a section called, "Beware of Writer II: Revenge of the Teenage Penmonkey from Mars," and laughed out loud several times, particularly during "You Can See Our Libraries From Space."

So far it's sort of like Stephen King's "On Writing" with more attitude, structured as a collection of essays. Chuck Wendig is a funny guy, with a story worth knowing -- at least as far as 17% of my way into the book lends me credibility.

Maybe I will start a feature called The 17% Report, where I grade a book based entirely on the first 17%.


You guys. If you steal my idea I'll know it was you.
