Exactly what I was looking for

I was looking for a resource that would help me develop as a DM. I had been a DM for years doing the same thing over and over. I felt like something was missing but couldn't figure out what it was. This book helped.

Helpful tips for Dungeon Masters

As a DM who is often overwhelmed by the amount of prep work associated with bringing a module to to table in a competent manner, I found this book has a lot of helpful information about how to reduce some of the things that eat up a lot of time and don't provide a lot of in-game payoff. Also, the book gets to the point and doesn't waste a lot of time. At under 3 hours, it's not a huge time investment to get the knowledge it offers.

-1 star as it refers to a pdf a number of times that is supposed to be supplied with this audiobook that you never receive with Audible. It doesn't hamper things too much, but it really would have been nice to have.

For those who need to take a walk on the lazy side

Great stuff. I shall be coming back to it many times to beat myself over the head repeatedly to get the wisdom to go in. Shame a lot of the material is in, quote, "the accompanying PDF", which I have yet to track down (hey, I'm getting into this lazy thing) but I guess that's the drawback of the audio format
