I'm a filmmaker and frequently try my hand at screenwriting, so I get lots of books like this to inspire and to learn more about the craft. I really love the content of this book! It breaks down stories into different types of characters, situations, themes etc. The problem with this is, is that it's pretty useless as an audiobook. What you really want is to be able to review these lists and breakdowns as you are writing, and an audiobook is just not a good format for that. So this audiobook has absolutely convinced me that the book is a must-buy, but the audiobook itself is kind of useless. Buy the book instead!

If you've read a book on writing before, you'll learn nothing new here. I don't have a problem with that. Having the essentials of storytelling hardwired into your brain can't be a bad thing, so I don't mind hearing things I've heard before. That said, when you claim one will "Write Better Stories Faster," and you don't provide any original tips on how one would do that, well, I can't rate this higher than three stars. If the subtitle were, "The Elements of Storytelling," I'd have given it five stars.
