How To Write Better Copy is a go-to book for me. It is too easy sometimes, to just sit and write copy that flows naturally from your own creativity and viewpoint. But, sometimes your viewpoint isn’t what is needed. You need to write to appeal to your reader and that is what this book reminds me to do. STOP. THINK. STRUCTURE. WRITE.
