No tips here on “How to be funny” at all. Just a bunch of general drivel on “It’s good to have humor. It helps keep you healthy...” Save your money. Or try Dave Nihill’s book on talking funny. It’s hilarious and gives lots of great tips.

Every person has a story to tell, but few beginners know how to uncover their story's narrative potential. And despite a growing interest among students and creative writers, few guides to the genre of memoirs and creative nonfiction highlight compelling storytelling strategies.

I've read several books on "how to write your memoire", and most were fluffy and superficial. This book however has DEPTH! It makes you think about the WHY or the "Occasion for the Telling" and the HOW, your two main characters - your "experiencing self" (in the past) and your "remembering self" (your current you). I think I am listening to this book for the 4th time now and still getting lots of ideas and angles out of it. Thanks to the two authors for pouring your decades of in-depth experience into it!

This concise guide tells you how to write a novel by using a systematic approach to writing. A simple step by step breakdown of how to plan each day.Most guides regurgitate information, which they have picked up from creative writing books or sites.Writing a novel is the same as any other task we undertake as individuals. We have to learn how to do it in order to do it well. When you first learn to drive, you need lessons. No one walks into the kitchen and creates a gourmet dish on their first attempt. If you want a system to apply to writing a book, then you need to take advice from an “author" who has taken years to develop the process via experience

What would have made How to Write a Book in 90 Days better?

The book was a bit amateurish and did not flow easily. It was a struggle to listen to the narrator and glean anything from the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Holbrook?

The narration did not flow easily and was very difficult to listen to. The narrator had a strange accent, mispronounced many words, and his delivery was very choppy and amateurish, with unusual pauses and inflections. Within a few minutes I had to turn the book off and request my money back.
