There is a lot of fantastic information in this book, if you can manage to stay focused to find it. What happens when you get three eggheads together in one book is often too much expounding and not enough editing. The powerful resumes of the three authors tell you they know what they are talking about. I only wish they would have not felt the need to prove it in such verbose fashion. The editing would have helped dispel the notion that the authors hold an "elitist" view of the world much more convincingly than the repetitive denials that they instead chose to leave in the text, IMHO. Dost thou protest too much? My advice: Listen in intervals, and whittle it down to the nuggets of wisdom by jotting your own notes, leaving out any mention of surfing or "dragging a backside hand". (That alone would have knocked off two hours from this book, I think.
If you've ever wondered what makes Stephen King tick, or if you've ever wondered what it would be like to have him tell you what it takes to become one of the most prolific writers of our time, this is a must listen. Whether you are a wannabe novelist, or merely a fan of Mr. King, you will not be disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I am SO glad that the author read it himself. A gift, in my opinion.
