    1. This could be titled the Yin Yang rules to writing. I have had this on my to read shelf for a while and am often in two minds re ‘how to write books’ while on projects. I found this to be useful and thought-provoking taking some of the current standards such as the ‘show don’t tell’ maxim examining them and then giving a Confucius style opposite. It is very useful for reflecting on the creative process - a constructive addition to the writers bookshelf.


    2. I put this book aside for a while; I wasn't finding it helpful, and the author's style was irritating me. Then I picked it up again and found that the next chapter was exactly what I needed for the story I was writing, so I felt better-disposed towards it. The book is geared more towards script- and screenwriters, but there is useful stuff for novelists too. I liked the structure, with each chapter stating a rule, e.g. "Show, don't tell", discussing it, and presenting a revised rule at the end. [...]


    3. From the perspective of a novice this book is very useful. It certainly gave me a few points to review for my own project and has really got me thinking about certain aspects, which I otherwise might have had to change at a later stage. Ultimately as the title states, there are many unwritten rules and there are good reasons to break all of them. If you, like me, are starting out and want to know what they are then this is a good place to start.


    4. I didn't enjoy this book very much. It's not really for me - I think if you want to write scripts for theatre, TV or film it's relevant to you and you'll probably enjoy the excerpts from people in the fields.


    5. More a reminder or reaffirmation of what I already know or believe. Offers up some alternative viewpoints. All in all, probably more useful for someone starting out than for one who's been doing this awhile.
