I enjoyed reading this book about ways a writer can make money. The author talks with wit and honesty about his own experiences. Several times, I chuckled about his clever tricks.However, much of what he did is unethical. Yes, there are ways writers can earn money (for example, by writing students' term papers, and even the papers by which students are assessed for admission to university).The author reasons that since these scams go on anyway, he might as well be the one who profits.Much as I enjoyed reading about them, I don't want to lower myself to his ethical standards, and it saddens me that many writers who read this book may follow his example. Perhaps it's best to approach this book with an open-minded attitude, and to ask yourself "Would I go that far? Would my own conscience permit this? Would I be willing to sell my ethical standards?"
