Critic Reviews

"His first course that I purchased for $60 got me into the industry. I listened to it and wrote everything down point by point and did as much as I could. I made $8,000 on one site alone." (Roger Gauthier, CEO, Tri-Vision Global, Inc.)

Good lil' book

Generally I have a dislike for the maelstrom of short ebooks and audiobooks self-published by wanna-be "experts". This isn't one of those cases.

This one's useful and information-packed. Concrete tips on beginning and structuring your how-to ebooks.

Much better than the title might suggest.

The book offers very solid and practical advice on managing the project of writing nonfiction books.

The title might make you think he is offering a get rich quick scheme. However the author lays out very helpful suggestions on the work needed to do before and after the actual writing process. The author focuses on writing a good first draft within one weekend.

His advice would be extremely helpful for the new writer or riders who know they have more to communicate but just need assistance to manage the process.

The narrator also does a very good job of communicating the concepts clearly making this and enjoyable read or listen and well worth the time.

Great information!

This audiobook was easy to listen to with lots of great information. It is filled with things that I had not thought to consider when writing a book. I have listened to it over and over to get all the information I can from it. I am excited to start writing my first book.

Precise step-by-step information

I've been listening to several audio books on how to write a book and this had such great information that was easy to follow.

Vic's book is succinct and informative. He gets to the point with what seems to be the most important steps to writing a book quickly.

So poorly written, I couldn't listen

Here we have someone who really can't write, writing a book about writing. I should have known from the title, but thought he must have improve since flunking English. He hasn't. I couldn't get past the first five minutes before I decided that I didn't want any advice from this person.

I was amazed at the value in this book!

Any additional comments?

I thought the author gave an abundance of really good information. I was so pleasantly surprised. I planned to listen to it again, soon!

A waste of time...

Would you try another book from Vic Johnson and/or Wes Talbot?

No

What could Vic Johnson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Provide real information appropriate to the title. For instance the reason it only takes 24 hours is because you can record the book, pay a transcriber and hire an editor. That's some expensive useless advice.

What aspect of Wes Talbot’s performance would you have changed?

The performance was decent.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None
