Provides both Great and Vague advice.

More actual examples would be nice. This book seemed like it was written for those who intuitively pick up on the instruction being given.

It does give a nice structure to a creative process that is difficult for any one person to encapsulate. But the vagueness included here are almost too much mist to grab on to.
