Stephen King is both a talented writer and teacher (his chosen vocation before becoming a famous author). Anyone interested either in him or becoming a writer should read his book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. This book is full of advice, humor, entertainment and inspiration.
I have often enjoyed his books, but more than that, I find him to be a very effective instructor who willingly shares his own tales of struggle and offers his advice to others. His interviews show him to be a man of remarkable intelligence and generosity – someone we can all learn from.
