A Memoir Of The Craft
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.
“Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.

A Great Read
Many people always ask the same questions about King, where do you get your ideas? And etc... In On Writing there is a look into the mind of Stephen King, his life, his work, and best of all his thoughts on writing. Anyone who likes his books should read this book. Aspiring writers should also read this. All in all a great read.
Needs some attention!
This is a great book, but the cover is for gone with the wind. Fix!
Enjoyable read and helpful!
I found myself smiling as I turned the pages and was pleasantly surprised by all of the interesting personal stories. Helpful writing tips, common sense and humor... This book was my first iBooks/iPad purchase and worth every penny! :)
