The Forest for the Trees by Betsy Lerner

This book is an interesting insight into the world of publishing while offering solid advice for all writers. The Forest for the Trees was recommended on GoodReads by another amazing author Will Schwalbe. His book, The End of Your Life Book Club will definitely deserve a long blog post of its own. There are few books about books that will touch your heart and lengthen your reading list like this book. 
Betsy Lerner's book should be a most read for all aspiring and new authors. And probably for many more. Since I definitely want to take advantage of any help out there, this book was quickly added to my reading list. 
The anecdotes about famous writers and the editing process was made fascinating by a gifted editor and agent who is also a gifted writer. The book reads easily and quickly but linger over the good advice and take notes.
