Writing for Impact
8 Secrets from Science That Will Fire Up Your Readers’ Brains
by Bill Birchard
I received a complimentary ARC copy of Writing for Impact, 8 Secrets from Science That Will Fire Up Your Readers’ Brains by Bill Birchard from Netgalley and Harper Collins Leadership, in order to read and give an honest review.
… A well-written, informative, and down to earth guide for writers of all kinds, I highly recommend it…
If you are a writer and enjoy learning what happens in the brains of your readers, this book is for you. Being a writer and having a strong love of learning about neuroscience I personally found this book fascinating.
In Writing for Impact, Author, Bill Birchard offers his eight tips to help writers engage and evoke an emotional response in their readers. Each chapter goes into detail on how to keep It Simple, Specific, Surprising, Stirring, Seductive, Smart, Social and Story-driven offering advice, examples and neurological research that will help writers understand how our writing can impact readers.
Although very research forward, I found Writing for Impact to be a practical guide to writing that I will refer to again. A well-written, informative, and down to earth guide for writers of all kinds, I highly recommend it.
