The all-time best-selling writer's handbook turns thirty.

"I'm convinced that none of the writers of my acquaintance can go
another day without a copy of Natalie Goldberg's magical manual
Writing Down the Bones."-Linda Weltner, The Boston
"The secret of creativity, Natalie Goldberg makes clear, is to subtract rules for writing, not add them. It's a process of 'uneducation' rather than education. Proof that she knows what she's talking about is abundant in her own sentences. They flow with speed and grace and accuracy and simplicity. It looks easy to a reader, but writers know it is the hardest writing of all."-Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
