Yes! Writers will enjoy this book - and benefit from all the good tips on creating characters, writing dialogue, developing a plot and most of all - entertaining their readers.
Listening to this book is like having Tom Sawyer teach an entire course in fiction writing - with many hilarious stories from his own experiences in TV writing as well as many real examples of how to be an excellent writer.
Jeffrey does a great job of narrating this book - very breezy and lively style - a pleasure to listen to him.
This book made me rush back to my computer and try to finish my screenplay using some of the good ideas I had just heard.
Loved every character and thrilling moment in this book - yes, I'd listen again!
Sawyer tells two parallel stories - present time and 1963. Each is compelling and filled with exciting twists and surprises.
I don't want to spoil the surprise - but the scene where we-the-reader discovers the secret from 1963 that has propelled this story from the outset - well, it made me gasp out loud with amazement. And go back to listen a second time, just to be sure.
There is one especially tragic killing that reminds us of just how desperate the "bad guys" can be.
I recommend The Sixteenth Man wholeheartedly!
