"I found it very entertaining. Until Child can be persuaded to publish his own version of Stephen King's On Writing, I think it will be a wise investment for anybody who wants to write popular fiction." -- Jake Kerridge * Daily Telegraph *
"It is as if Jack Reacher wrote literary criticism instead of beating bad guys to death with his elbows...because of Child's eloquent fascination with his craft, this book happens to be a better manural of writing than any manual of writing. It's also a entertaining buddy-suspense movie." * Financial Times *
"It's fascinating to watch the process of writing unfolding in real time...it shouldn't work - after all writing is a predominantly mental activity - and yet it does in a way that makes you wonder why no one's thought of doing this before....Andy Martin has created something new here: a fusion of literary criticism, biography and fly-on-the-wall meta-novel which serves as a remarkable insight into the creative process." * Spectator *
"Love Jack Reacher? You'll have to enjoy this....revels in the minutiae you didn't realise you wanted to know." * Shortlist *
