This was a good book, and it had a nice flow in it, making it read almost like fiction. It covered much more then just characters, in a way.

One of the best books I've ever read. No fiction writer should stay without!

No fiction writer should skip this book. Card lays out all the essentials about viewpoints and how they affect a storyline and a reader. It's a very easy to read book with many examples and passages written specifically to illustrate his points. This is an A+ read.
