Would you try another book from Randy Ingermanson and/or James L. Rubart?
The author and narrator are both proficient, but using the Goldilocks parable to demonstrate how to use the Snowflake Method was condescending and very off-putting.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The technique works. I have the software and was hoping for more in-depth coverage and examples, but the characters - the grumpy Little Pig, breathless Goldilocks and furry-chinned Baby Bear prosing on - were so annoying, I couldn't finish the book and returned it.
Any additional comments?
Using a standard lecture delivery approach would have made this book useful. Using cartoonish characters to deliver the author's message wasted my time and spoiled the presentation of key messages.

as a beginner fiction writers, I find this book extremely helpful. must read. it help me organize my thoughts and work better. the style is fun and the story is enjoyable. if all writing and literature classes could be like this, we would have many more creative writers.
