Any additional comments?

A truly exceptional guide to writing fast. I have been writing for decades and never understood why I could sometimes put thousands of words on the page, and why other days I could barely get a word out. Writers block? Location? Time of day? There were just too many questions. I have to admit that I've been kind of thick-headed and stubborn when it comes to advice on writing fast. My assumption was that books that present systems for writing fast would only end up sacrificing quality of prose for speed. Now I understand that isn't the case at all, at least not with Jonathan's system. You can write fast and you can write well. I think Jonathan has done a fantastic job of describing how the writing process really works, almost as a medical doctor could describe the respiratory system, or the intricacies of how the heart works. Jonathan understands writing from the position of a true professional who knows his craft well. The narrator did an outstanding job as well, and I applaud his clear pronunciation and the pace of his narration. I find that some narrators are just too fast, and they read as if they have one emotion. The narrator did a great job in giving life and character to Jonathan's words. I recommend this book to everyone who is serious about writing. Just humble yourself like I did, and listen to this great teacher of our beloved craft. Thank you Jonathan and John, you have really done writers a service!

We often take time for granted. We do not understand the importance of time and the impact it has on our lives. Most of us struggle on a day-to-day basis to manage our time. Why is this? This is because we are not aware of the fact that it is entirely possible to manage our time. We have been lead to believe that time cannot be managed or controlled by man. Allow me to correct you by saying that it is absolutely possible to manage your time.

Daniel's book hit home for me. I just made this book mandatory reading for everyone in my organization. The narration by John Alan Martinson Jr is superb as is all of his Works. He has a unique way of bringing every story to life!

Marine Corporal Sean Nichols is wounded in a devastating ambush that takes the lives of his three friends and leaves him an amputee. If not for the heroism of his sergeant, Deke Tilman, who pulled him out of the road, Sean would have surely died with his fire team. With the help of Deke, Sean now embarks on his next mission - recuperate from his serious injuries, and visit the families of his fallen comrades as he tries to make peace with such profound loss.

I absolutely loved Battle Scars! John Alan Martinson jr. did a phenomenal job of bringing this book to life. Midway through chapter 1, I invited a few friends to Give a listen. Excellent job!
