"This week-to-view number is a must-have for budding writers. As well as writers' quotes, it gives reading tips and a table for recording submissions to publishers."

"Don't be put off by the fact that this is aimed at writers. It is immensely practical too. It's waterproof, with a ring binding and a piece of elastic for securing those scrap papers with all those important numbers and ideas."
The Independent (30 November 2006)
