This book, although it is just a little over 2 hours long, took me much longer to get through. Not because it was bad or boring but in fact just the opposite. It was so dense with information that I kept pausing it to make notes or follow through on the recommendations La Ronn makes. I have only recently found La Ronn though his Author Level Up youtube station (which in turn I found through a creative penn podcast) and I will now be buying his yearly state of the union as soon as it comes out each year.
My only complaint is that I would have liked to have the narration done by La Ronn himself. It is very rare that I think an author should self-narrate (I still stand by only Neil Gaiman should do it for fiction, and for non-fiction it is highly dependent) but in this case, having heard La Ronn speak on podcasts and on youtube, I think he would have been more than up for the task. As it was the narrator was fine and does not take away from the book. I just think La Ronn would have done a better job. In fact, there were certain things Dalton Lynne said where I thought "that is not how La Ronn would have said that sentence."
I highly recommend this book to any author, but especially those who are self-publishing or thinking about going that route. You will be quickly brought up to speed on the latest developments and have the information to move forward with your writing career.
