it was amazing

Great book. This is one I'll probably listen to once a year until I know the concepts so well that I don't have to think about them. There's so many different (yet similar) ways to approach writing, but this book does a good job of synthesizing many ideas I've heard before with new explanations as well as new ideas. It's like getting to skip the MFA program because you're hearing from someone who's already been through it and then had to figure out how to actually sell what they wrote afterwards. (Ie: it's a great melding of literary and commercial concepts)
