    Story
    (32)

    In her 93 remarkable years, veteran freelance writer, memoirist, and writing teacher Brenda Ueland published some six million words. She once said there were two simple rules that she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and to not do anything she didn't want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her best-selling classic that first appeared in the late 1930s and has inspired thousands to find their own creative center.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book is great - a classic. But this abridged version doesn't do this wonderful book justice. And why abridge it to begin with? It's not a long book. So much wisdom is left out.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Ueland? Why or why not?

    Of course - IF it is unabridged!


    What about Pat Carroll’s performance did you like?

    She read this wonderfully! My complaint is certainly not with her performance - she was great. The whole (audio) book needs to be made available.


    Was If You Want to Write worth the listening time?

    again, needs to be longer - the whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said, this book is such a gem, an unabridged version needs to be available. And with Pat Carroll reading it as well.
