John Scalzi tries to write a meta-self help book on how he chose to be a better writer. The actual book falls short of his hopes. Parts of the story are amusing, and the concept is fun. However, the poor dialogue and atrocious plot holes prevented me from enjoying what the author was trying to achieve. I chose to listen to this book because of its high ratings as well as being read by Wil Wheton. Wil did not have much direction in this reading (as compared to others I have listened t) All the characters came out sounding angry or exasperated. I feel like it was a bait-and-switch.
