1. Short review:  (Amazon rating: 4 stars out of 5 -- I like it.)

2. Long review:
2.1. What I liked:  Much useful information. 
Roller-coaster or walk-in-the-park? Neither. Non-fiction.
$4.99 and worth it.

2.2. What I did not like: The book shows its age. A significant fraction of the 'solutions' addresses concerns pertinent to traditional press submissions.  

2.3. Who I think is the audience: Writers.

2.4. Is the book appropriate for children to read?  Yes. No worries.

2.5. On the basis of reading this book, will I buy the author's next book?  Yes, but already I have a number of books on writing by Bob Mayer.

2.6. The plot in a nutshell:
Does not apply.
 2.7. Other:
     My criterion for determining the worth of books that purport to advise writers is this: If I learn one thing I did not know before, the book has repaid me its purchase price. 102 Solutions to Common Writing Mistakes met that criterion and then some.
     If you are a writer, this book is worth the money.
