Although this book was published in 2000 and therefore is somewhat dated, it does have a plethora of ideas and suggestions. I will certainly keep it as a reference. I think the weakness is that it doesn't deal with the current way of doing things primarily through email, but except for that it seems to cover almost everything else from the actual writing to studying the market, how to submit, the language of contracts and taxes. I can certainly recommend it.
All these books helped me enormously in my writing, the grammar and the tips. I have sold several articles. Great publishing tips!!!
I'm sure the information is good, but I found it almost impossible to get over the fruity American accent. It was incredibly annoying and irritated me so much I am sorry I brought the book.
Good Book! Still taking notes and understanding more :)
This book has shown me how to actually get published in magazines. It will not only give you the 'how to' but it will also encourage you to take the risk and put yourself out there.

If you are serious about making money writing this book is a must.
This is a great book. It is simple to read and gives clear understanding advice. This book gives great ideas of writing and selling your articles. It even gives sights in which you can go to to find out what articles are needed in the near future so you can get a head start on your writing.
The authors of this book wrote a book that is very easy to read and provides alot of very helpful information for those trying to get published in magazines. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is laying the foundation of becoming freelance article writer.
