My vote is for On Writing by Stephen King. This clear and concisely written book narrows down the core medium or channel of creativity from author to writer as telepathy, which has proven to be true. The reader will see what you, the writer, show them. With Stephen King’s friendly, approachable writing style, the aspiring writer has a book they will read again solely for entertainment, which will also help them review and hone the fine points of the craft.
