If you have previously been a C++ wonk, you probably know Scott Meyers
as a household name. He wrote excellent books on Effective C++
and Effective STL
in the 90s, and his writing style has influenced others, including Don Box
who wrote Effective COM
. Now, Scott has written a great article on his own experiences in writing and getting books published titled Advice to Prospective Book Authors
. Even if you are an armchair book author (“one day, someday, I will write a book!”), you owe yourself a read.
