a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
Using brainstorming methods to get enough ideas to paper that you can make a book out of them...an interesting survey of done methods various authors and reporters have used.
The narration really got on my nerves. I can't put my finger on exactly why it bothered me, other than I found myself scowling every time Bronson Pinchot put the emphasis on the wrong part of a sentence. It would have been much more enjoyable with a more professional/experienced narrator. That aside, the book itself is slanted toward business, but the ideas are inspirational from a more general viewpoint as well.
This book has some fascinating concepts, but I got pretty bored with it pretty quickly. I suspect had I read the print version, I might have stopped to try some writing before moving on. Since I listen to audiobooks primarily in the car, this format didn't work for me.
Loved this exploration into varied techniques of freewriting. The narration by Bronson Pinchot, of "Perfect Strangers" television sitcom fame, was particularly good as well. Highly recommend!
I love the idea. There are some great tips here. However, the book didn't need to be nearly as lengthy as it was. I had it on 3X speed and was surprised how long he took to describe things like examples of opposites. It needed some serious editing.
Worth listening to over and over again. Like with most good book, one time through is a teaser. Anybody who writes can benefit from this book.
This book can be summarized in a lot more shorter and useful book. I felt like it was unnecessarily stretched just to accomplish a full book.
May have gotten some ideas on writing, but nothing specific.
It was an okay read. I guess I was looking for something else. It took me a long time to finish, but I did.
