This book really delivers on the title in all the right ways. It starts with an in-depth explaination of different writing terms. Each section gives you gives many, many questions to help you figure out what your character, worldview, and narrative is for your book which is absolutely invaluble.
This isn't someone trying to give you a few premade plans, this is a workbook that walks you through the step by step process of figuring out your world. It helps you to weave your worldbuilding right into your story with questions to ponder and figure out.
