Would you listen to 20K a Day again? Why?
I absolutely LOVED this book, and the narrator is a pro!
I like Jonathan's writing style where he pulls you into a story and then later on he gives you the reason why he was rambling on about his story.
I think John was an excellent narrator for this audiobook, but I was also thinking that that an old man that sounds like grandpa could have read this. Jonathan just goes off on all these tangents, and you're like "why is he telling me this"—he keeps rambling on like an old man—and then you'll have an "aha moment" and be like "ohhh, that's why he was telling me about his dog" or whatever. It's a really entertaining way to teach, instead of some dry instructional manual.
So is the book worth it? Well let me ask you this: Are police officers really domestic terrorists? Of course! You have to get this book. Jonathan never disappoints. The man rambles on like an 80 year old geezer high on cough syrup, but never disappoints. I got more juicy tips on improving my writing in the first two hours of his long-winded storytelling than I got from listening to six different audiobooks on how to succeed as an author.
Stop playing games with "how to" books written by guys that are broke!

There are a great many 'how to write' books out there, and as a full time writer myself, I have to admit that the title made such a bold claim (20k words in a day) that I was skeptical. However, after just the first few sections, I knew that Mr Green was coming at this from an entirely new direction. Using dictation and planning as the core, and then moving into various methods like sprint writing, mastering distractions, and mental rituals to get oneself into 'the flow' the author managed to make good on the claim. The narration is crisp and the segments are presented in short bursts, which made it very easy to listen to in pieces throughout my day. Already I am implementing parts of his process and seeing results in my own writing, which is where, for me, the proof reveals itself. I was provided this audiobook free of charge as a review copy, and have picked up the print edition for reference.
