Wie man einen verdammt guten Roman schreibt.

Das Buch ist unterhaltsam zu lesen, es ist jedoch schwierig, den Nutzen zu

Wenn guy vor allem daran interessiert ist, wie guy sich einen Bestseller-Plot
für eine Geschichte ausdenkt, ist guy hiermit vermutlich intestine bedient.

In a Natural Science like chemistry it may not be necessary to know anything about the human being who is writing. In any subject which entails human subjects, the work must be put into a personal context.
