I don't get it. This hour was filled with nonsense and empty words and phrases.
It was a decent performance in that the speaker spoke with confidence and as though he was saying something profound, but I didn't find anything specific or practical that could be applied.
He repeats certain "tips" and encourages people to take notes but it goes nowhere.
A lot of rambling nonsense, random quotes, and failed attempts at humor which the audience somehow thought was funny.
Any useful and practical advice would have helped.
Not having a series of resumes and author biographies would have helped tremendously; that is essentially all the book is, a compilation of interviews of the writer's career with no attempt to apply their personal experience to help other writers. It would be nice if every other sentence was not I, I, I. It really makes the writer seem extremely ego-centric. It seems the writer was motivated to brag and the careers of those who provide advice was not very impressive anyways.
The performer's tone and voice matches the writing -- self absorbed.
I am still listening as I write this and I can honestly say I still have not heard anything that can be considered a tip, let alone a useful tip.
This is not a book it is a lengthy advertisement which actually makes me not want to read any of the people mentioned.
