Lesson Plan

By the time the last lesson was over, and Mr. Patterson (Jim, to me now) had set me loose to write my best seller, I had developed a genuine respect for the man.

Mr. Patterson is not only a great writer, but a natural teacher as well. His style is casual, uncomplicated and straightforward. Highly recommended.
