There are a lot of books on story structure, but only The Plot Machine presents a step-by-step guide to designing a story. In clear, precise language, this guide discusses the various types of stories we tell, their specific parts, and how they are assembled. Say good-bye to staring at the blank page waiting for lightning to strike. Just put a few coins in the plot machine, and write better stories faster.

The information is to the point, and covers the major types of plots.
Narration is wooden but serviceable.
No. I listened to several parts over again to absorb the information.
If you've read a book on writing before, you'll learn nothing new here. I don't have a problem with that. Having the essentials of storytelling hardwired into your brain can't be a bad thing, so I don't mind hearing things I've heard before. That said, when you claim one will "Write Better Stories Faster," and you don't provide any original tips on how one would do that, well, I can't rate this higher than three stars. If the subtitle were, "The Elements of Storytelling," I'd have given it five stars.
really enjoyed it! lots of practical information to use right away. short and to the point. wish he had more books. Narrative was a bit monotone but I found it funny and enjoyable on my second and third listens
