Not my style

Everything about this audiobook turned me off. The author sounds cocky. The advice is both obvious and unhelpful. And in general, it's just unpleasant to listen to.

Creative marketing for dedicated artists.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The information in this book could propel an artist's career. It would also be a great tool for the marketing side of a cooperative gallery.

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Drew’s performances?

The narrator has a robotic, monotone delivery. Took some effort to stay focused.
