I thoroughly enjoyed this course. The lecturer is an excellent narrator and sounds very empathetic and understanding. He breaks down the topic into very logical lectures, each focused around very useable frameworks. He frequently references outside studies, but doesn't get bogged down in the details, making it relate to the issue at hand. There are some dramatic enactments of examples which are sometimes cheesy, but overall add to the course. This audiobook is good from start to finish (arguably getting better as it goes), rather than many books, where it's one good idea re-hashed 50 times.
Wow! Really, wow! What a pleasant surprise. Don't be fooled by this book's average looking cover.
Firstly, it does exactly what it says on the tin- It tells you where you can find your best ideas and how to capture and build on them.
But it's much more than that. It's also about finding 'flow' , about silencing your inner critic and other demons for long enough to let your higher self shine It's exciting, motivating and offers some of the very best techniques for overcoming writer's block I've ever come heard.
If you need some inspiration and motivation to tackle major problems in your life, whether work related or life issues, I strongly recommend you have a listen. You don't need to be a writer to use the techniques. But if you are a writer like me, then you'll find them doubly valuable.
As you listen you'll find yourself itching to try stuff out. It really is that good.
I've ordered a hard copy to serve as a permanent writing companion. I know it's going to be a book I keep with me for a long time.
It's broken down into lots of short chapters. Each one describes a technique and has various exercises to follow. You'll need to stop the program to do the exercises. If you listen straight through without stopping you must then go back to listen again, otherwise you'll miss out.
As you listen you won't doubt the power of the techniques covered. He's a really good writer and he puts it all down to the techniques he's describing.
Also, it's been very well recorded and read. The narrator has done a great job. His voice is easy on the ear, well suited to the material and he keeps you listening.
Do yourself a favour - get this book!
