You just need to look @ the name: 5 Writing Books That Have Made Me a Better, More Creative Writer.

Unsurprising, ‘cept for King’s On Writing & Strunk & White’s Elements of Style, which everyone already knows ’bout, they’re vapid inspirational books–cheap forms o’ therapy for the ditsy middle class.
