This book is fun to listen to and it's short and to-the-point. The narration by the author can be funny. She left a number of moments in the recording where she breaks down and laughs and makes some funny self-deprecating comments. This book is helpful for writers who are stalled out, can't get started or are just having a difficult time believing that they have something worth saying. Goldberg frees people up.

If you are trying to write a book, I would recommend this one. She is cool and easy to fall in love with as you connect with her story. The theme is just write. Volume is king and being open and raw is the key. Read this book to write yours, but also just read this book for the fun of it. Let a new friend in your car - you will enjoy it.

I love the paperback. It's my favourite book on how to get out of your own way and write. So many writing books deal with editing and shaping prose but few deal with how to consistently get the words on the page in the first place. This Audible audio version is of such poor recording quality that it cripples the joy of this work. Do yourself a favour and get a high quality version from the author's own web site. I did.

This is the first Natalie Goldberg book I have read and I can't wait to do so again. Natalie's ability to open your mind to possibilities, plant nuggets of knowledge and ideas into your brain is amazing. Her words are gold. I am looking forward to reading her other books.
