The ideas in this lecture are covered in "The Hero's 2 journeys." That lecture is a tag-team effort from Chris Vogel and Michael Hauge and covers much more ground. If you have already listened to that lecture and want more of Vogel's ideas, this lecture has a few extra details and a little more depth.

I'm no writer, but I have some ideas that I want to turn into stories. In light of that, I thought this was informative. When I start putting pen to paper I will make sure to listen to this again, and take some notes.
In addition, this gives new perspective to enjoying TV shows, books, movies, or other types of storytelling media.

This is Mr Vogler's personal spin on Joseph Campbell's inspiring work - an audio-book which did everything I had hoped for.
You'll probably find yourself running your own story-line alongside Vogler's model; a process which both exposes weaknesses and suggests solutions. His delivery is energetic, passionate and has a great lightness of touch - lots of good humor. He is a superb communicator.
Truly riveting and highly recommended for anyone interested in how a good story works.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
This is a reasonable starting place to introduce yourself to the concepts surrounding the 'monomyth' & explore some of the core archetypal characters that make a story come to life. This is all based upon the ideas pit forward by Joseph Campbell & have a breathable pace.
If you’ve listened to books by Christopher Vogler before, how does this one compare?
He has a laid back casual & relatable way of communicating.
Could you see Using Myth to Power Your Story being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
Not exactly, but any Hollywood movie worth its salt will go through the 'monomyth' pretty much verbatim. The Wizard of Oz & Star Wars being two good examples (George Lucas was aware of & influenced by Joseph Campbell).
Any additional comments?
For anyone who is interested in the flow & craft of a story, myth, or legend.
