Book Review

Peace Corps Experience: Write and Publish Your Memoir by Lawrence F. Lihosit.  iUniverse, 2012.  Amazon pricing: $23.95 hardcover, $13.95 paperback, $3.99 Kindle edition.

This is a small book of only 127 pages including the index.  I read the entire book in two sittings.  If you are interested in writing a memoir about your Peace Corps Experience this is a value book to add to your collection.

The book is light on the writing instructions.  Strong on offering encouragement with a few general writing guidelines.  The details are in how to design and publish your book.  Everything is covered from front cover to back cover and all the pages in between.  Speaking of cover, can it get any more colorful?  It made me want to dig out my woven Philippine Igorot wrap skirt.

If you plan to self-publish this book will be a great help.  Even if you plan some other form of publishing; you will still need to consider most of the items discussed by Mr. Lihosit (Honduras 1975-77).

The information about book cover design is a highlights of this book, as represented by it’s beautiful cover.
