    "The "For Dummies" series can teach you about any number of different topics. If you are trying to learn about writing, this particular choice is alright, but I'm not sure if it is one of the best works from this series, or even if it is the best book on this particular topic. The "Writing Fiction" guide might be better, overall, for aspiring writers."

    "I found this book to be just a so-so For the Dummies book. Yes, there are tricks to learn here and a few of the exercises are helpful to get back in the swing of long term memory retention. But, compared to other For the Dummies books, which offer rigorous know-how and technical skills, this one is lackluster and sometimes TOO common sense."

    "This book is a must buy for students trying to learn Calculus. It presents the ideas in an easy to understand "layman" style. I found myself using this book outside of class to explain things that I didn't quite get during the lecture. Awesome tool that helped me to pass Calculus and much cheaper than the required textbook I had to buy for class."
