In the Introduction, Marcy Kennedy writes that the goal of this ebook is to quickly give a writer an overview of how to write dialogue well, so that no unnecessary time is taken away from actually writing their WIPs. I think she achieved this goal admirably! Every point, from dialogue basics to more advanced techniques, is made clearly and well-illustrated with sample mini-dialogues.
Of particular interest to me were the revision exercises at the end of each section which I am going to use when I start revising my first draft. Links are also provided at the end of the book to download worksheets from her site.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this resource to writers as a great place to begin crafting dialogue or as a refresher or reminder of what to be on the lookout for when revising.
