Lawrence Block shares information he's gained over his years as a successful writer in a way that makes you feel like you're listening to an old friend. I love his sense of humor. Take his advice, find your own voice, and you can become a successful writer.
I've listened to Telling Lies For Fun And Profit several times. It encourages me, gets me excited about writing, and reminds me that every writer has moments of struggle. We all doubt ourselves at times. The only way to improve and get your work out there is to read other works of fiction, learn your craft, and keep writing no matter what. Telling Lies For Fun And Profit is one audiobook that can help you put the pieces together.
It's a pretty cute, entertaining audio-book. While it does contains seeds of practical advice, it seemed to be more inspirational and encouraging to me than anything else. A nice listen for when you are tired of writing and want to know you are not alone.
