Tries to be inspirational, teaches little.

I felt that much of what was talked about in this is common sense. There was way more, be it seemingly useless advice, for writers and almost no advice for artists. he mentions hiring an artist and other advice but does not follow through with where to actually do these things. No websites or references at all. His advice for being funny is basically watch TV and read books. I am sourly disappointed. 2 stars for effort.
