Would you consider the audio edition of Big Magic to be better than the print version?

Can't say, I just listened to the audio. I bought the hard copy as a gift.....

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really like the way she presents the whole notion of creativity and where it comes from. I found this very uplifting!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This was basically ok. I think the author does have a lot to offer but this book was a bit of a ramble to be honest.

What was most disappointing about Sherri Thomas’s story?

The audio was extremely poor. It sounded like this was recorder in the bathroom. There was a very hollow echo.

What did you take away from The Bounce Back that you can apply to your work?

Had some good points but seemed more like a ramble on various topics.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

An insomniac.

Has Stop Negative Thinking turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but I will listen to a sampling now before anything I buy. I wish I could get my money back. This was really pointless.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The audio quality was quite poor.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The points rambled with no real connection. At several instances the author contradicted himself within 2 minutes of trying to make a point. The book never really grabs you and holds your attention.
