Informative and fun

I enjoyed listening it and learn a lot from the examples. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Does not include a PDF

This is an excellent resource for anyone planning on writing a memoir/biography. Unfortunately it does not come with a PDF that would have been helpful for going back and reviewing information at a glance. (In a written versus audio book this would not be a problem). To somewhat circumvent this deficiency I recommend that readers bookmark the section numbers with their titles. That way it will be less difficult to go back through to find a section you want to review. The information is all good. The narration is also good, with a southern drawl. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Great Listen - Narrator Sounds Like Trace Adkins

I've read Carolyn Jourdan's book Medicine Men and found this to be a great insight into how she did it. One thing the author focuses on that few others do is setting and how capturing the setting really does so much to help bring the reader in. She covers a lot in the 3 hours of audio and is worth the listen. The narrator, while he has an excellent voice, paces well, much like a teacher. It's a well thought out and executed book.
