Steven Pressfield is innovating with content

Posted by Otis Chandler on July 6, 2009
I just listened to a five piece video made by author Steven Pressfield titled War & Reality in Afganistan: It's the Tribes, Stupid. Now while I'm not going to comment on the content of these videos, I did find them very interesting and think they are worth watching.

What I found particularly interesting was that these videos are not part of any book. Steven Pressfield has written two books about the subject (Alexander the Great, and The Afghan Campaign), so he knows a lot about it's history. So much in fact, that he felt compelled to speak out. And instead of writing Yet Another Political Book, he laid his thoughts and arguments out in a clear set of videos.

What I love about this is that Mr Pressfield is participating in (and even starting) a conversation about a topic he is passionate about. I think we need to see more of this. And I think there is no better way for writers to generate lots of attention and traffic to their blog.


If you want to watch it start with Episode one!
