Would you try another book from Pete Geissler and/or Ray Allaire?
This book should have taken its own advice about lists and bullet points. Every single chapter was a series of lists, with sub lists with over-simplified examples that marginally explained the listed item before initiating a sub-list or moving on to another bullet point. Or sometimes had no explanation. Item # 6 in a list of 17 writing tips stated "always be cohesive, and unified", and then went straight to 7. Also, to my memory, it WAS a list of writing techniques, but there were 17 of them and I don't really remember the focus of the list after 17 things and an hour of discussion.
What three words best describe Ray Allaire’s performance?
Well-paced reading for the subject material.
Was The Power of Writing Well worth the listening time?
Somewhat. Probably had 5-10 takeaways after 4 hours of lists.
What made the experience of listening to The Power of Writing Well the most enjoyable?
you can expect practical, useful advice from a professional writer, and you get it with this book. Geissler has written for a variety of businesses, taught advanced writing at prestigious universities and firms, and authored eight books and counting. Trust him to give you the straight skinny
