      One book in my writing collection, I bought it from Barnes and Noble on a vacation to see my sister. I was browsing through their reference section and came across it.

      After reading the back I thought it was what I was looking for.

      I have to say I was disappointed.

        Someone who needs a primer book, could probably benedit from this one.

        I will have to keep hunting for the book I’m really looking for.
