    "DON'T.. here's why:"
    What would have made Published better?

    SUMMARY:
    - (All chapters, seemingly) Very thinly veiled marketing propaganda for the author's writing course gimmick called SPSS 90 (or some such nonsense... sounds like an infomercial fitness machine). Easily the most incessant bold-faced marketing I've ever encountered in an audiobook.
    - (Chapter 1) Opens with story of how his first ebook--one of questionable quality, he admits--became wildly successful literally overnight. He found this out while snowboarding in Austria. He gives the usual justification for why college is dumb (liberal arts requirements). He talks about how he'd smugly undermine the authority of his business professors in front of the class because, he argues, they didn't know anything. Buy SPSS 90.
    - (Chapter 2) More of the same... He had instant success despite being a terrible writer (<--his words), so anyone can do it! He goes on cherry-picking stories of others who've been wildly successful just publishing a single e-book. Buy SPSS 90.
    - (Chapter 3) More of the same... everyone should do it... more cherry-picking success stories... saying anything to convince you you'll become successful no matter what (assuming you buy-in to his fool-proof writing system, SPSS 90)
    -(Chapter 4) Begins describing his SPSS 90 system, which you should buy. He goes on: a) think of ideas you're"passionate about." b) Choose the idea you're most "passionate about" and think you can write about quickly. c) Freewrite for 15 minutes. d) Brainstorm content using techniques learned in elementary school <--his words. e) Write more. f) Finish ASAP. g) Publish-- don't worry about quality--just get it done. h) ???. i) Profit.


    That's about as far as I could get into this audiobook. It was basically a terribly cobbled rehash of other MUCH better books.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No clue.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I would have probably listened further based on "benefit of the doubt," but the author/narrator sounds like a combination a teenage mutant Ninja turtle ("Cowabunga!") and the "Dude, you're getting a dell!" kid. He basically sounds like what you'd imagine a snowboarding know-it-all college dropout would sound like.


    What character would you cut from Published?

    Chandler Bolt.


    Any additional comments?

    Instead of wasting time and money on this book, get "write, publish, repeat," and "write to market." Those are the best two I've come across so far.

    I will return this one.

    Prospective buyer, please be aware that reviews that reference the author, by name, are usually fake (see other reviews). Just sayin..

    "Best book for 2017 so far"

    I like the way in which Chandler tells his story. Very practical step-by-step advice enables you to write a book in 30 days. The advice is authentic and doesn't feel 'spammy' like a lot junk out there.

    Chandler you rock!

    "Well worth it!!!!"

    A straight forward, no nonsense approach with proven method from an everyday practitioner. I thoroughly enjoyed this and appreciated the fact the author narrated this. It felt as if he's talking to me. I'm so excited and know this approach will help me achieve my next level in my career. Thank you and I highly recommend!!!!

    "Excellent Advice"

    Mr. Bolt provides encouraging advice on how to get a booked published. I am especially happy with the guidance he gave on book launching. I prefer when authors read their own books because it makes it feel like the author is speaking to me personally. Mr. Bolt's tone, inflection and style are easy to listen to. Thank you for an excellent book.
