I strongly recommend that you buy this book. I couldn't put the book down. As useful as it is to read a book from a writer on how to publish magazine articles, it is even more useful to read a book that takes you into the minds of magazine editors. Each chapter is an interview with a different editor. It is like sitting down over a cup of coffee and having a very personal conversation with an editor. Each one reveals different insights into how to write for magazines the right way. Sometimes they differ on points of view, but it is interesting to understand each one's perspective. Editors, who are normally too busy to write each person who has submitted a query letter and explain why it was rejected, offer many explanations in this book. Do you know why so many query letters are rejected? Do you know what pet peeves editors have about writers? Do you know what qualities they look for most in query letters? Do you know how writers can break in at the top magazines? Then get this book!

An honest look at what editors really want

Besides providing a peek at the editor's point-of-view (always useful), this book also gives practical advice for people just starting out in the freelance business. This book has a great deal to offer and would not be a waste of money for anyone interested in writing for magazines.
