The Best Writers
This book is ok so far. I noticed a lot of review, but it's to be expected. The thing that really irked me though was the references to "the best writers" or "the best leads" and each time it seemed that these "best" things didn't follow any of the rules taught in the book. "The best writer will often find a great lead that violates all these rules" (292). At the same time, the way to become the best wasn't clearly stated. Clark and Scanlan are telling me there is a different/better way to approach writing, but not giving me that secret.
So this book is telling journalists how to be mediocre rather than the best? Just to get hired instead of promoted?
P.S. I'm not trying to criticize here. Just point out repitition.
